Most clients are seeking help with relationships.  Many clients are engaging in online dating.  Clinicians can help their clients with attachment and romance by using a helpful book on online dating.

 

Social media has a wealth of information. This great amount of data allows us to look at trends, discover correlations, and make predictions. We can now use it to alert people of mental health needs and send them helpful resources.

Three important questions:

Is there a problem with access to mental health services?
Why are people not receiving treatment?
Can telemental health help?

Have you ever had to find a counselor for yourself or a family member? It can be nerve wrecking. The emotional, time, and financial commitment can be great. Sometimes, if the counselor and client are not a fit, the client may give up on ever trying counseling again.
Technology has found a good solution to this. Check it out on this video.

How do we as therapists help our clients with digital dating? A new study sited at the American Psychological Association links swiping with self-esteem issues.

Dee shares:

Dee Wagner, BC-DMT, LPC, primary creator and instructor of our Digital Dance online course has a new post out on the International Coach Federation blog.

Insurance fraud is a serious matter!  It is very unfortunate when telemental health providers find out that they have been committing insurance fraud without even knowing it. 

In this video and blog post, I share my experience switching from using paper charts to using a practice management program.

If I never made the switch I may have burned out from the administrative tasks of running my private pactice.

  • How Out-of-State Providers can Register to Provide Telehealth in Florida

    The Florida legislature has passed Chapter 2019-137, Laws of Florida. Signed into law by the governor and effective July 1, 2019, Chapter 2019-137 clarifies the definitions for health care providers who use or plan on using telehealth services in Florida, as well as the steps needed to provide ethical, legal and competent services within the state.
