COVID-19 has disrupted the flow of treatment. Counselors with no telehealth experience use the telehealth environment to meet regularly with their clients. There is a gap in understanding transferable clinical skills in telehealth counseling sessions. This webinar will review mindfulness and cognitive based interventions applicable to telehealth. A mock telehealth session will be provided showing how to apply these interventions. These activities can be used to interrupt anxiety and panic, lessening the likelihood of hospitalization or a return to substance use. Participants will be provided with telehealth counseling tools useful during and after the COVID-19 crisis.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to identify how COVID-19 has impacted those living with co-occurring anxiety and substance use disorder.
  • Participants will identify how to use telecounseling to implement mindfulness and cognitive based interventions.
  • Participants will list three activities useful for those living with co-occurring anxiety and substance use disorders that will help lessen anxiety and prevent relapse during COVID-19.

Education is FREE to all professionals.
