Press release from: TeleMental Health Institute Inc.

31st August 2017, San Diego, CA - While many professionals are already practicing over state lines, most of them are surprised to learn that they are doing so illegally and unethically. This upcoming webinar sponsored by the Telebehavioral Health institute will feature Dr. Marlene Maheu. She will outline the 7 most common erroneous assumptions made by many licensed professionals, and help replace these assumptions with actionable steps to legal and ethical practice over state lines. From explaining the basic functioning of licensing boards, to reviewing how interjurisdictional practice impacts coaches, to how to keep required documentation, Dr. Maheu will explain how to legally and ethically manage risk and for all health care practitioners.

Whether you are a large or small organization, serve as a company CEO or deliver direct care as an independent practitioner, this webinar will give you clear and concise answers to your most difficult questions about interjurisdictional practice. Dr. Maheu explains, “There’s no secret to practicing over state lines. Such practice is absolutely legal and ethical. The only problem is that most professionals have never had the opportunity to learn how to do so.” She continued, “Interjurisdictional issues have been the focus on my writing and training for the last two decades. We’ll dispel the 7 most common myths, then discuss how responsible professionals can proceed with legal and ethical practice over state lines.”

Internationally recognized telehealth expert, Marlene Maheu, Ph.D., is scheduled to present the latest telemental health / telebehavioral health practice webinar titled, “7 Biggest Mistakes Made by Mental Health Professionals Practicing Over State Lines.” The webinar will be broadcast Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific.

Dr. Maheu will:
Outline the essential functions of licensure
Explain why calling yourself a “coach” to practice over state or province lines when you are licensed will get you in more trouble than it is worth
Relate ways your malpractice coverage can automatically be nullified, despite your carrier’s claims that you are “covered” for online practice
More about documentation, mandated reporting and supervision over state lines
