View Recording of Interjurisdictional Practice:
Now & Post-COVID

The horse is out of the barn. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape and trajectories of telepsychology and interjurisdictional practice forever. It is critical for psychologists and other mental health practitioners to stay on top of the current status and emerging trends in this landscape that is changing daily, as different regions emerge from stay-at-home orders. PSYPACT is an interstate compact specifically designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology and the temporary face-to-face practice of psychology across state lines. PSYPACT predates the COVID era and will be a leading force in the post-COVID quarantines. Join Dr. Alex M. Siegel, lawyer and psychologist, as we look at what has been accomplished, what is still left to be accomplished and more importantly, action-items for all practitioners who wish to expand their services over state and international borders. Dr. Siegel will cover some of your legal and ethical mandates as you develop your telehealth practice and possibly venture across state and country boundaries to practice.
