In 2020, counselors rapidly transitioned to telehealth in order to continue serving clients during the COVID-19 pandemic, with few counselors having adequate training and experience.  We managed to muddle through, developing at least a basic proficiency.  Still, many counselors struggle to engage clients (and themselves) online, finding it difficult to treat OCD, trauma, and anxiety disorders from behind a screen.  We may be recovering from the pandemic, but telehealth isn’t going anywhere, so it’s time to turn it up and advance our expertise!  Using real case examples, participants will learn strategies and techniques to improve client participation online while addressing disorders that many find difficult to treat through telehealth.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe updates in laws, rules, and practices related to telehealth.
2. Identify challenges related to online client engagement.

3. Adapt multiple counseling interventions to engage clients with complex symptoms online.
