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.
