Crisis & Risk Management in Telemental Health Practice
3.0 CREDIT HOURS
Since the advent of COVID-19, telehealth has risen as a widely favored platform for both delivering and receiving mental health care. More people than ever are seeking tele-mental health services and the demand for mental health professionals who can adeptly navigate and effectively address client crises, particularly those related to suicidality, has never been greater.
It's no longer sufficient to rely solely on the standard intake procedures and established protocols. Instead, we must explore advanced techniques that not only bolster the therapeutic alliance but also empower us to foresee and manage potential challenges. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to enhance your skills and convey unwavering competence and preparedness in handling crises across the entire continuum of care.
Throughout this workshop, you'll gain invaluable insights into strategies for engaging clients in both preliminary and ongoing crisis planning. We'll delve into the intricacies of crisis anticipation and resource mobilization, whether your clients reside in rural or urban settings. Moreover, you'll acquire the essential knowledge required to guide clients seamlessly toward more acute care options when the limitations of telehealth become apparent.
