Workshop Description: The pandemic has required that we all shift quickly to telehealth to support the mental health of our students and families. In the shuffle, attention to best practice and engagement hasn’t been easy! This training will cover not only the legal requirements for telehealth and how to maintain confidentiality, but also how to set up a space for telehealth, how to improve engagement with clients of all ages using technology, and tips on how to approach some of the more sensitive topics facing our students (like abuse and suicidality). By the end of this training, you will feel confident in your ability to use telehealth and have tools to engage with students and families effectively.
