You could handle anything a child or teen client threw at you in your office. From extreme disengagement to hyperactivity, you could overcome any client challenge and your office was equipped with every potential game, tool or intervention to immediately engage, calm, or respond to a client. Given your extensive education, training and experience… why are you not achieving those results in a telehealth setting?

Now you can. Whether you’re managing clients with ADHD, ODD or any disruptive behavioral orders… learn how to setup, establish and optimize a telehealth practice for kids, teen and family therapy. And, upon completing this two-day seminar, you can receive instant credibility and authority with a telemental health certification!

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.

ADDITIONALLY – you get access to practical, tested and updated telehealth interventions for children, adolescents and their parents. Upon completing this seminar, you can instantly implement unique technical strategies for Zoom, and other technology platforms, to elevate – and sustain – client engagement. You will leave this seminar with a robust telehealth toolbox that adapts your “in-person” interventions into a virtual setting. You will achieve improved clinical outcomes with effective telehealth practices in talk therapy, play therapy, and nondirective play therapy.

Best of all, upon completion of this live training, you’ll be eligible to become a Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider (CTMH) through Evergreen Certifications.
