Telehealth therapy has been around for quite a while now; but due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 placing us in the midst of a global pandemic, many of us have had to “pivot” in order to provide continuity of care to our clinical patients. This presentation will cover some of the basics for providing telehealth therapy, including technology literacy, HIPAA & privacy, and what to do when your client is “more casual” during session. In addition, this presentation will also cover other legal and risk issues, such as can you treat your client via telehealth if they travel outside of Michigan and risk assessment via a video platform. This presentation will offer case studies and ample time for questions and discussion.
