Presenter: Jennifer Hama, LPC, CPCS
Jennifer Hama, LPC, CPCS, has been practicing for 12 years as a psychotherapist and over 4 years as a Certified Processional Counselor Supervisor. As a past director of two departments at a large behavioral health hospital, Jennifer developed a passion for helping the new clinician as well as helping clients access treatment. This inadvertently led to her appreciation for telemental health as a way to help clients gain access to treatment. Jennifer currently uses telemental health as an adjunct to therapy when clients have transportation or childcare issues. She also uses telesupervision with her supervisees.

This workshop is designed to help you ease into understanding the basics of telemental health as outlined by the board rule 135-11-.01. Together, we will examine the basics of telemental health from informed consent to intake and termination. We will also review possible delivery methods. This workshop is for the person who is open to hearing about how telemental health could benefit the current work they do in an ethical and legal way.
