About the Event


This three hour webinar is designed for social workers and behavioral health providers who are adapting to our digital society. Join our webinar to understand how you can provide continued care, amid COVID-19. Through an engaging presentation, hands-on learning, and an interactive Q + A, we’ll teach you how to utilize the right devices, policies, and practices for teletherapy services you can use to limit risk and maintain ethical practice.

  • During the pandemic, are you working from home in contrast to a traditional office?
  • Are you struggling to adapt to the digital shift that COVID-19 has heightened?
  • Do you feel lost overwhelmed with the thought of shifting to teletherapy, and you don’t know where to start?
  • Are you confused or lacking clear information about when and how to transition back to normal, post-COVID? What should your new normal even be?
  • Are you able to access the same technology/software at home that you had in your office?
  • Is this your first time trying out phone and video therapy?

If you’re trying to navigate these changes alone during COVID-19, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed. By attending this webinar, you’ll learn that you’re not alone. We have solutions to help you confidently maintain confidentiality.

In This Webinar, We Will...

  • Discuss the new federal guidelines for phone and video therapy
  • Learn how to prepare your clients/patients for the day-to-day challenges that come with remote practice
  • Identify specific criteria to choose the right software for electronic communication, with coworkers and with clients/patients
  • Establish a security protocol to ensure security safeguards of client/patient information while working from home
  • Cover the essentials you’ll need to add to your client/patient consent form for teletherapy
  • Explore opportunities and understand barriers to practicing across state lines

What This Won’t Be

This webinar is an overview of some of the key concepts and considerations for using video and phone to provide clients with the care they urgently need during this difficult time but…this is not a substitute for ethics or legal consultation. We always encourage learners to seek consultation through NASW for ethics and legal issues. It’s a wonderful member benefit to take advantage of!

While we will provide you with the tools and resources to be compliant with telehealth practices, the information provided in this webinar is for educational purposes only and does not serve as a substitute for formal ethics, clinical or legal consultation or legal representation. Any information provided here is based on the information available and reviewed by the trainer at the day and time of the webinar recording. 

While we do our best to provide up-to-date resources, sources of information, including laws, regulations, and guidance are also subject to change at any time. Technology tools discussed for the use of telehealth practice often change and may not be considered in accordance with laws or ethical guidelines that may change at any time in the future.
