Special Clinical Webinar:

Telehealth vs In-Person: Ethics and Strategies for Treating Those at Risk

Mary K. Alvord PhD and David Jobes, PhD

Friday, May 3, 12:00–3:15pm ET

3 CE Credits

About the Webinar

Drs. Mary K. Alvord and David Jobes will present key ethical considerations for telehealth in this 3-hour workshop designed to meet PSYPACT and licensure renewal requirements. Telehealth is a modality that reduces barriers to care—particularly for rural, remote, diverse, and underserved populations. Drs. Alvord and Jobes will focus on criteria to help practitioners determine when it is in the client‘s best interest to use in-person versus telehealth sessions, or when it’s appropriate to use a hybrid model and at what point in treatment. They will also discuss how practitioners can ethically offer a range of options. Dr. Jobes will discuss commonsense suggestions for managing suicide risk and emergency situations when using telehealth as a modality. He will discuss informed consent, third parties who may be asked to assist in an emergency, and provisions for problems that may come up related to using telehealth (e.g., privacy, bad connection, wifi drops the call). Dr. Jobes will also discuss decreasing exposure to malpractice liability by doing evidence-based care and documenting the clinical work well.

Learning Objectives: 

    1. List two factors regarding regulatory and interjurisdictional practice when deciding to use telehealth, hybrid, or in-person sessions. 
    2. Explain how client preferences affect decisions of care.   
    3. Discuss how to determine whether remote, in-person, or hybrid care is best-suited for the client. 
    4. Explain how to provide ethical care via telehealth with clients who are suicidal 
    5. Explain how to decrease malpractice liability through effective risk management

    Recognizing and Treating Body Dysmorphic Disorder

    Sony Khemlani-Patel, PhD

    Thursday, May 16, 2024

    2:00–3:00 p.m. ET

    1 CE Credit

    About the Webinar

    Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is largely underdiagnosed and overlooked due to many factors. Individuals with BDD often seek cosmetic procedures rather than mental health treatment or do not reveal the nature of their symptoms to clinicians. BDD can present with high suicidality, multiple co-morbidities, and significant impairment in functioning requiring clinicians to address a multitude of risk and clinical factors. Dr. Sony Khemlani-Patel will help you to recognize and assess for the diagnosis, distinguish it from disorders with overlapping symptoms, and introduce evidence-based treatment strategies.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Describe the phenomenology and clinical features of BDD
    2. Discuss how to diagnose BDD and how to differentiate it from other similar conditions
    3. List treatment options for BDD
