The Fundamentals Of Establishing Your Online Counselling Practice - Intermediate

May 10, 2018  09:00 - 16:30
Fee: $0.00
Seats Remaining:28

Clients everywhere are asking for online services. And many counsellors want to respond to the demand and get online. But there are serious ethical, practical and clinical considerations. 

How secure is the technology? Do some therapeutic methods fit better with specific online modalities than others? Can face to face policies and procedures simply be tweaked or are new P&P's required? What about boundaries for counsellors? What does the research tell us about indications and contraindications? What about marginalized populations? Are certain clinicians better suited to online work? How does one compensate for the absence of tone and non-verbals in text-based work? Is moving into video counselling as simple as it seems, or are there important considerations before going with video? What about texting with clients? What about insurance? And what about the USA PATRIOT Act?

All of these questions and more will be covered as we work towards giving you the tools necessary for your own online practice. This workshop is suitable for private practitioners, multi-counsellor agency representatives, educational counselling services and all points in between. It will be valuable both for those planning a practice and for those already working online.

Lawrence Murphy  is the founder of Therapy Online, the world’s first online practice. Over the last 23 years, he has set up private practitioners, EAP’s, Family Services and educational institutions online.
