Impact of Technology on Treatment

Join us for this live webinar event
March 20, 2023 -- 3:30 - 7pm Eastern Daylight Time
3.5 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians

Not so long ago, almost all appointments took place in person in an office. Now, with various forms of technology like video conferencing, telehealth, client portals, mobile apps, texting, phone appointments, and others, clinicians must carefully consider how they approach treatment in these various platforms.

Technology can significantly affect communication, treatment style, and technique, requiring clinicians to be flexible and adaptable. While it is advantageous to have many communication choices, further understanding is required to ensure the best clinical practices.

In this course, participants will deepen understanding while learning practical skills related to technology in clinical practice. Participants will:

  • Consider research on the impacts of technology on treatment. 
  • Consider the benefits and drawbacks of various technology forms to inform decision-making and approaches. 
  • Describe how to select the telecommunication process for a particular client situation. 
  • Explore tools for modifying clinical style and approaches to adapt to technology. 

This course is full of relevant research, approaches, and considerations to equip clinicians with the knowledge and tools to effectively manage technology.

Raymond Barrett is the founder and CEO of the Telehealth Certification Institute, LLC (TCI). A licensed mental health counselor (LMHC and LPC), Ray is an innovator and leader in the field of telemental health. He’s an expert telehealth trainer, a respected speaker, and a trusted consultant.

Ray’s inspiration for TCI came from his clients that started asking him to conduct their therapy sessions over the phone. Ray had discovered a knowledge gap in mental health training. He wanted to fill that void with comprehensive and practical training in telemental health - so Ray created that training for himself and fellow clinicians. 

Since 2014, TCI has delivered comprehensive telehealth training and consultation to a global network of more than 40,000 healthcare organizations and professionals. TCI now offers over 180 specialized courses, a vast array of telehealth resources, and ongoing free continuing education opportunities for telehealth providers. Among the most sought-after courses offered by TCI is the Telemental Health Training Certificate (THTC Certificate) program. 

Ray played a significant role in developing the initial curriculum for the Board Certified Telemental Health credential (BC-TMH) for the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE). He reviewed every training module. He helped draft content, including questions for exams. He even wrote and developed the initial draft of one of the training modules: Telemental Health Settings and Coordination of Care.

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) - the most respected organization for telehealth - recently overhauled its guidelines. Ray was on the writing committee that developed Best Practices in Synchronous Videoconferencing-Based Telemental Health in March 2022. 

In 2019, Ray participated in a task force for developing a clinical rating process for mobile apps designed to help treat depression.  The recommendations were presented to ATA.

The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides accreditation services worldwide at the request of health and human service providers. As part of the International Standards Advisory Committee (ISAC), Ray helped establish CARF’s standards for virtual services.

Ray also is a frequent speaker and consultant for professional organizations. He has presented for over 20 organizations since 2015.
