Telehealth with Traumatized Children and Adolescents

HELD: Wednesday, June 3, 2020, 10:00am – 11:30am (PST)

Please join us for the webinar: Telehealth with Traumatized Children and Adolescents. This is the sixth webinar in the 12-webinar series, Minimizing Disruptions in Care Through the Use of Behavioral Telehealth (Video and Phone). The goal of this webinar will help clinicians understand the research behind the use of telehealth with children, adolescents, and their caregivers. It will also look at the implications for traumatized children and adolescents when using a telehealth platform.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Participants will be able to explain two research findings that support the use of telehealth for treating behavioral health conditions in children and adolescents.
  • Participants will be able to list at least two clinical considerations when using telehealth for treating children and adolescents who have been exposed to trauma.
  • Participants will be able to describe two different ways to enhance client engagement when working with clients in a telehealth platform.

This webinar series is intended to not only build skills in telehealth, but also to highlight some of the learning from the field in offering behavioral telehealth services. We want to hear from you, so please bring your innovations, success stories and learning from your own transition to telehealth resulting from COVID-19.
