Press release from: TeleMental Health Institute Inc.

1st January 2018, San Diego, CA - Having Difficulty finding the right technology for telebehavioral health / telemental health? The telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) can help you sort through the primary technologies for your particular behavioral health practice. Whether you seek to engage in services known as video conferencing for online therapy, distance counseling, telemental health, telebehavioral health, telepsychology, tele-nursing and telepsychiatry in this one hour webinar, TBHI teach you how to choose the best HIPAA-compliant technology tools for serving your population.

As lead author on several textbooks about telemental and telebehavioral health and relevant competencies, TBHI’s executive Director, Dr. Marlene Maheu will describe 7 simple steps to applying telebehavioral competencies to choosing your technology. This 1-hour program will be focused on the specific needs of the average practitioner as well as to the group practice, clinic, agency or hospital administrator. This webinar will give you clear and concise ways to easily integrate legal and ethical telebehavioral health best practices when considering your technology options.

Dr. Maheu explains, “It’s quite simple and straightforward, but most clinicians working online today have no clue that competencies exist. Many still believe that no laws or ethics codes exist, either. They couldn’t be more wrong. She added, “Licensing boards and professional associations are systematically enforcing the law and making examples of professionals who are practicing in ways that are illegal and unethical. In this webinar, we’ll help clinicians, researchers and students better understand what is expected when they think about their technologies. We’ll give them a 30-question list to ask their vendors so as to be sure that they know what they are getting.”

Internationally recognized telehealth industry leader, Marlene Maheu, Ph.D., is scheduled to present this 1-hour update on telemental health / telebehavioral health practice webinar titled, “Skype Alternatives: Which HIPAA-Compliant ​Technology is Best for Your Practice?” The webinar will be broadcast Wednesday, January 17, 2017 from 2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific.
