Many mental health counselors are interested but hesitant to practice counseling online, also known as distance counseling. Distance counseling carries additional risks related to technology, ethics, and the potential of handling a crisis situation with a client who is in a separate physical location. Understanding the laws and ethics that apply to the practice of distance counseling such as HIPAA and HITECH can ease this concerns and ultimately expand counseling services to more clients. This webinar will review basic technology requirements and ethical considerations for distance counseling, as well as how to use distance counseling to benefit clients in a variety of clinical settings.

    Recording of a webinar presented by Andree Aubrey, LCSW of Florida State University College of Medicine on 12/8/17: Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the US and causes more deaths than the primary behavioral disorder in people with behavioral health conditions. Behavioral health clinicians are uniquely positioned to impact this problem which has largely been unresponsive to traditional state tobacco control programs and policies. In this webinar, clinicians will learn brief and intensive evidence based interventions for tobacco users who are ambivalent about quitting, review guideline based counseling interventions and discuss seven FDA medications which double the livelihood of success. We will review emerging literature which indicates improvements in mental health with abstinence from tobacco and indicates modest improvements or at least no harm for tobacco cessation during recovery from other addictive substances. CE Broker Tracking #: 20-548615 Learning Objectives: Goal: Behavioral health clinicians will more fully understand the deadly outcomes of tobacco use, the tobacco industry's influence in promoting the idea that individuals benefit or are self-medicating with tobacco, and identify clinical and policy interventions which assist people with quitting successfully. (1) Learners will understand extremely high tobacco use prevalence rates for those with behavioral health conditions within a framework of a health disparities population. (2) Learners will develop or enhance evidence based clinical interventions which increase cessation attempts and successful outcomes. (3) Learners will be able to access community based treatment services, quitline services, and over the counter nicotine replacement therapy medications for their clients with no fees or other costs. (4) Learners will be able to advocate for policy level interventions which support cessation for staff and clients and address a treatment culture which is often amenable to tobacco use. (5) Review of Joint Commission tobacco measures Disclaimer: CEUs are only available to members who attended the live event on 12/8/17. This video was posed for educational purposes only.
