On a statewide poll of 137 counselors in Florida, 95% of counselors who were providing direct client services reported that they were providing telehealth sessions, whereas only months earlier only a small percentage of counselors offered telehealth. The COVID-19 pandemic created a rapid shift among counselors, but many of us have little training or experience with telehealth and lots of questions, such as: 1. What platforms am I allowed to use for telehealth? 2. What are some of the unique clinical, ethical, and legal considerations for telehealth? 3. What should a telehealth consent form include? 4. How can I make telehealth sessions more personal, engaging, or interactive? 5. What happens if my client is in another state and wants to do a telehealth session? 6. How do I bill insurance for telehealth? This 3-hour presentation seeks to answer these and similar questions about telehealth services.
