NOON HOUR WEBINAR: Emerging from the Pandemic: A Public Health Crisis into a Public Mental Health Crisis: Telehealth and its implications on Social Workers and Best Practice
Presented by Roberta Bronecki, MSW, LCSW, Kristen Golat, MSW, LCSW, Barbara Perkins, MSW, LCSW
Social workers in all walks of practice are emerging from this pandemic in a different world. Our practices have changed, and not by a thoughtful plan or by choice, but rather, we were thrown into a world of technology that many of us were unfamiliar with and equally uncomfortable executing. As we emerge, we are now mindfully thinking about telehealth and its practical implications in clinical social work. In this session we will explore the question of best practice in telehealth services through the domains of care. What clients are best suited for telehealth services? How do we assess for appropriateness for telehealth services? What are the risks and legal implications of the use of telehealth services? And lastly, how do we, as social workers, embrace and execute services thoughtfully in this new world?
