A Live, Interactive Webinar
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 @ 3:00-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
Telehealth is proving to be sustainable and effective as treatment centers have transitioned traditional counseling services to online programs. Counselors are tasked to translate face to face skills to telehealth with limited training to recreate foundational helping. This presentation will provide counselors with the tools to create virtual counseling groups which can be applicable to various levels of care. Participants will obtain skills to enhance group cohesion and participation via telehealth. This presentation will provide participants an opportunity to observe the application of evidence-based practice group skills, such as "rolling with resistance", for application in their own daily virtual work.
