The focus of this webinar is to increase counselor competence in using technology-assisted media to perform therapeutic counseling services. We will define “telemental health” and explore the many names it has been called over the years. The presentation will also highlight the barriers and benefits of using technology-assisted media, including research suggesting that telemental health is just as effective as in-office counseling. A review of ethical codes for and how they relate to using technology-assisted media to perform therapeutic services will also be covered. Finally, the webinar will include state and federal regulations and standards for helping professionals.

In 2014, Dvine started providing telemental health services to clients. She is board certified in telemental health and provides training to fellow clinicians on the fundamentals and ethics of telemental health approved by the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia. Dvine’s passion is in three primary areas: family safeguarding, individual growth, and telemental health awareness. Through individual & family counseling, Dvine has serviced individuals & families who have been impacted by substance or alcohol use disorders. She also facilitates interventions initiated by families of a person struggling with substance use related problems.
