Friends, I have some very exciting news: on Monday, December 21 and Tuesday the 22, I will be presenting a certification training for telemental health with children and adolescents! The training will be live on those dates, but PESI will be recording the seminars and making them available for purchase to be completed at your leisure.
This training is something I have been working on for months. Before March, when a young child was referred for telemental health services, best practice was to refer them for in-person sessions. Of course, that has not been a safe option for quite a while now. I have had to scramble, adapt, and learn quickly, and now I get to share what I learned with other professionals!
My hope, by making telemental health accessible to a younger demographic, is to make mental health services available to kids living in rural or under-served areas even after we have found ways to make in-person services available again.
If you provide therapy services to kids, check this out!
