Program description:
COVID19 has thrown all of us all completely into the virtual world of telehealth treatment, whether we were ready for it or not. Many believe that even when the present pandemic has passed us by completely, telehealth will remain an enduring component of our work, and the practice of psychology will never again be as it was pre-COVID.  This presentation will focus on the specific changes necessary for psychologists to adapt their practices to the age of COVID19 and beyond. 

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to:
1. List the important components to cover in a telehealth agreement with clients
2. Apply guidelines and restrictions to preserve confidentiality when utilizing telehealth in psychological practice
3. Utilize telehealth services to enhance therapy in ways that would be difficult or impossible with in-person therapy
4. Design proactive changes in the design of one's independent practice to adapt to the new reality of telehealth services  
5. Address anxieties and concerns of clients reticent about utilizing telehealth services in lieu of in-person therapy
