A Practical Guide to Providing Telepsychology with Minimal Risks

Eric Harris, EdD, JD, Alex Siegel, JD, PhD, and Mary Alvord, PhD

Whether psychologists decide to establish a telepsychology practice or not, there are situations which most psychologists face in their practices which require a knowledge of the essentials of safe, ethical and effective practice. This session provides the essentials and address situations such as how to deal with college students who are returning to school in another state or are planning a semester overseas; difficult divorce situations where parents live in different jurisdictions; short- and long-term changes in locations by clients as well as those who can no longer come to the office in person; and requests to practice internationally. Other topics on the use of telepsychology for private coaching services, requests for specialty services in places where they are not available, and requests by difficult and high-risk clients are addressed.

This session was recorded at the 2019 National Practice Conference and has been released to assist providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
