Telemental Health and Psychological Assessments (The Telehealth Certification Institute)

When therapy sessions moved online, for psychologists, psychological assessments presented added challenges. But the benefits of telehealth assessment go beyond safety during a pandemic: like tele-therapy, tele-assessment improves accessibility for clients who cannot easily attend an in-person appointment.

This course will prepare you to add various psychological assessments to your telehealth practice and learn which assessments can easily transfer to the telehealth setting and how to follow ethical best practices with these measures. Earn 6 Continuing Education credits.

Trauma, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Telehealth (The Telehealth Certification Institute)

What sits at the intersection of evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed care, and telemental health? It is challenging for clinicians to juggle the legal, ethical, and best practice considerations for clients who have survived trauma, especially when navigating telehealth considerations.

This course will enhance your knowledge of laws and ethics around telehealth, trauma, and cognitive behavioral therapy and provide information about the different components of trauma-informed care with CBT interventions. Earn 6 Continuing Education credits.

Telehealth and Play-Based Interventions (The Telehealth Certification Institute)

As research has expanded around the efficacy of telehealth with therapy clients of all ages, we know this is a viable alternative to children, teens, and families who need mental health services but are unable or prefer not to come to an office in person, even when it comes to play-based interventions.

This course will give you the knowledge and skills to determine when a client is right for play-based tele-therapy, what type of play is the best fit for them, and what specific interventions you can use in any session with any client. Earn 6 Continuing Education credits.

Telemental Health Certification Course (PESI)

This online certification course provides comprehensive yet easy-to-understand instructions on everything you need to know right now about practicing telemental health including ethics, technical & logistical setup, safety concerns and so much more when you are doing telemental health with kids and teens. Earn 13 Continuing Education credits.

Trauma-Informed CBT for Children & Adolescents (PESI)

Sometimes we struggle to balance individual kids’ needs with implementing evidence-based care.

This day-long seminar will teach you how to balance the structure of CBT and the flexibility of a trauma-informed approach, in a way that meets each child’s unique needs. Earn 6 Continuing Education credits.

In addition to the lecture, I provide links to free resources and demonstrations available through third-party sites. $5 for this one-hour course.

I have developed a series of classes for implementing a trauma-informed philosophy into your classroom.
