Due to the need for many mental health providers to transition to online service delivery as a result of COVID-19, this webinar will provide general guidance on the use of telehealth services. In particular, this webinar will focus on providing recommendations for adapting common Cognitive Behavioral Therapy tools (e.g., repeated assessment, homework tracking, etc.) for use with clients via telehealth. Special linguistic and cultural considerations for providers of Latino clients will also be presented throughout the webinar.


Who should attend? This is an intermediate level workshop designed for social workers, counselors, psychologists, graduate students, community health workers, and other mental health providers.
