During this unprecedented period of physical distancing, clinicians and school personnel have had to shift provision of services to video conference (VC) platforms. This webinar will focus on strategies aimed at engaging children and teens in psychotherapy, both individual and group, via VC. Dr. Alvord will provide strategies that build resilience in children and teens and will discuss essentials and ethical obligations required for telepsychology services pertinent to minors and families, highlighting key Practice Guidelines for Telemental Health with Children and Adolescents (Myers et al., 2017). Dr. Alvord will also emphasize requirements for informed consent from parents, some of whom might be separated or divorced.
