Unlocking the Mysteries of Telehealth: Back to the Basics of Building a HIPAA Compliant Foundation | Thursday, September 10th | 3pm ET 
As Agencies on the front lines of human service, Covid-19 took us all by storm. When face to face was no longer an option, relaxed guidelines allowed therapists to see clients through a crisis-mode version of virtual therapy. As rules and regulations are re-implemented, we need to go back to the basics of providing a sound, professional and HIPAA compliant foundation for this service. Due to very fortunate timing, JFS Omaha had already gone through the process of implementing telehealth pre-Covid-19. In this workshop, we will go over what has worked for our agency and share with you our step-by-step process. 

Virtual Supervision and Student Training | Thursday, October 1st | 3pm ET 
This session will examine elements of offering supervision to staff and students through the use of virtual technology.   Offering this modality for training and supervision requires identification of the clinician and/or trainee’s abilities, but also their technological competency. Competencies and barriers will be discussed. 

Managing Risk - Managing My Two Identities: Mental Health Expert and Zoom Expert | Thursday, October 22nd | 3pm ET
There is no question that mental health professionals want to provide the same standard of care virtually as they do during their face-to-face sessions.   This training will explore some of the unique challenges of a virtual platform, in terms of both the client and the clinician. 

Virtual Couples and Family Treatment | 
Thursday, November 12th | 11:30am ET 
This session will examine some of the unique elements of working with couples, families, and children during this pandemic.  Without doubt, our “offices” have changed; but this does not mean having to sacrifice effectiveness of our work. 

Virtual Transference and Countertransference | Thursday, December 10th | 1pm ET
During this COVID crisis, therapists have been challenged to transfer their clinical work to on-line platforms, with very little time to anticipate the specific challenges that this new medium presents.  This session will explore the unique elements that go into establishing a virtual relationship with a client, in order to maximize positive impact of the clinical work.
