This research-based online course is a 'how-to' guide for providing telemental health treatment in Mental Health and SUD programs, through remote Video Teleconferencing.  Remote interaction between clients and their mental health or addiction treatment providers is accomplished through mobile devices including tablets and smartphones, computers, and/or video cameras. 

This course explains why Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) in conjunction with home-based Clinical Video Teleconferencing (CVT) are as effective as—and sometimes more effective than—in-person, in-office treatment of PTSD in post-deployment Veteran populations. Effectiveness is also empirically demonstrated for individuals with anxiety disorders, those living in tribal reservations and rural areas, and for situational trauma. 

Learn documentation techniques which are acceptable for reimbursement and risk management.
