CCE TeleMental Health Provider Training Series Part One

Our clients, and the organizations we collaborate with, strongly depend on our competence in using technology.  Imagine this example:  A clinician states to her client, “What you say here, stays here.  I protect the confidently of our conversations.”  The client responds “Since I called you for our appointment, is my contact information now on your phone?  What about on your email, now that I have emailed you?  If your laptop was to be stolen or lost how would you know that my chart is truly secure?...” 

A foundation of the practice of counseling is the confidently of our clients’ information.  Unfortunately, our graduate programs were not caught up to the complexity of our current technology.  Great numbers of clinicians have taken on their responsibility to boundaries of competence by obtaining the needed training.  This pre-conference event is your opportunity to get caught up to speed as well.

Clinicians are receiving more requests for online counseling from prospective clients, insurance companies, and organizations.  And telemental health has been filling this great need.  You are invited to learn how to competently add online counseling to the services you provide.

NBCC has kept the pace with the telemental health demands of our nation.  Twenty years ago they provided the first standards for telemental health counseling.  Now, through the Center for Credentialing and Education, they are going to be offering a certification in telemental health.  This certification can make an LPC much more marketable. 

By attending this pre-conference event you will complete five out of the nine total modules needed to apply to become a Board Certified Telemental Health Provider.  You will benefit from our conference discount rate, and be able to finish the other four modules and apply for the certification online.

The modules covered will be:

  • Introduction to Telemental Health: An overview of the industry, market forces, practice requirements, funding and growth of telemental health
  • Best Practices in Video Telemental Health: Ethical and legal considerations from state licensure laws and mental health disciplines
  • Crisis Management: Protocols for managing psychosis and duties to warn and protect
  • Settings and Care Coordination: Understanding of clinic and direct-to-consumer differences, factors and terms
  • Information Privacy Security and HIPAA-HITECH: HIPAA training related to telemental health

 

the presenter is Raymond Barrett, LPC, LMHC, DCC

 

Ray is the founder of the , LLC.  He is an expert practitioner and educator of telemental health services.  Ray has extensively provided telemental health counseling services in private practice, for facilities, and for an EAP program.  He shares his expertise through his top-rated courses and by providing consultation.  Ray asks the tough questions and discovers the solutions.  Trainees find Ray to be very approachable, available, and knowledgeable.  Most recently Ray was the presenter on telemental health at the American Mental Health Counseling Association's annual 2016 convention, and presented a full credentialing course at the LPCA North Carolina Chapter's annual 2016 convention.  

Mr. Barrett will also present a 3.0 CE training on using Telemental Health during the supervision process.  Please see conference program for details.
