DESCRIPTION

CAMFT Course Page

Course Description:
Telehealth use to provide mental health services soared to over 500% between March 11 and April 22, 2020. As providers became more adept with HIPAA-secure platforms and other telehealth means, they expanded services to a variety of modalities and populations, including group and family therapy for children and teens.

This webinar will discuss the practical application and key takeaways from telehealth with youth during the pandemic. Additionally, we will discuss and propose creative models to work using in-person, virtual, and/or hybrid services going forth and the many logistical and therapeutic aspects to consider.
