    Evidence-based practice in telebehavioral health begins with ethical and legal standards. Fortunately, key national and international organizations have established ethical and legal guidelines outlining the dos and don’ts of telebehavioral health. Best practices include HIPAA/HITECH requirements, proactive procedures for dealing with consent and issues, how to identify appropriate technology, models for ethical decision making, and the steps for ongoing competence in using this modality. There are fourteen key areas that require attention to practice evidence-based telebehavioral health. The presenter will provide an interactive overview of the fourteen keys to ethical and legal telebehavioral counseling and supervision, describe resources available to support counselors and supervisors providing telebehavioral counseling and supervision, and assist participants in locating additional training in telebehavioral counseling and supervision.


    Dr. Stretch is the Department Chair for Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Online Campus of The Chicago School. She has taught for over 20 years, served as clinical director of a multidisciplinary mental health agency, and counseled in a variety of settings including vocational rehabilitation, domestic violence/sexual assault support, court advocacy, college counseling, disability services, foster care group homes, clinical supervision, and private practice. She co-edited and authored several chapters in Technology in Mental Health: Applications in Practice, Supervision, and Training. She received the first LPCS license in NC in recognition of her advocacy work and has served as the Chair and Ethics Chair for the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors. She served on the ACA Ethics Review Panel, as the Public Policy Chair for her state branch of AMHCA, and is a CACREP Team Lead. She currently serves as a 2-year Board Trustee with ACC and as the Co-Chair of CSJ’s Social Justice Advocacy Curriculum Taskforce.

    Hello Fellow Graduate Students,

    After our meeting, people were assigned to their designated sub-committees based on the google form that was completed before the meeting. If you are still interested in joining our committee, please know that we are here for YOU! We will be having another meeting in March or the first week of April based on everyone’s availability. Attached you will find our meeting minutes and a doodle poll for our next meeting; please complete the poll before March 20th.

    We are excited to hear about how the sub-committee meetings went. Our goal for the next meeting is to have had all sub-committees meet before and discuss plans/goals. If you have been assigned, you will find that you have access to the google drive for our committee. You will see a list of people and their contact information to get in touch with them for scheduling. Missy and I wanted to step back and not assign a “chair” for the sub-committee but rather allow opportunities for many people to collaborate and take lead.

    We appreciate all the work and time you are putting into our committee!

    You will find a copy of our February meeting minutes on the Graduate Student Committee webpage. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
