Product Description:

With the advent of video phones, netmeeting, and the ability to communicate face-to-face via computer, telehealth will be the next wave in offering psychological services. Most psychogists and most patients already have the access to the equipment necessary to allow for online counseling. What psychologists lack is information on how to apply face-to-face techniques to an online session. This book provides the basics for informing practioners what the pluses and minuses are to treating patients online, how to structure treatment, how to screen and communicate effectively online, how to interpret text without visual cues, and what the legal and ethical issues are to practicing online - particularly aspects of privacy, confidentiality, record-keeping, licensure, and liability. The book also discusses setting up group counseling online and the business aspects of online counseling, including fee collection and third party payment. * A comprehensive manual for the new modality * Written by leading experts in the field * Helps clinicians recognize the potential benefits and risks of the field * Understand important legal and ethical considerations related to online counseling * Gain theoretical and practical knowledge, expand your clinical practice and acquire new skills
