This workshop will focus on transferring your practice to online sessions by reviewing practical steps to get started, normalizing the transition for ourselves as well as clients to boost engagement, information on resources to guide privacy and billing aspects of online services, psychoeducational information for clients about online treatment, boundary considerations to take since there is a change to your therapeutic setting , setting frame for clinical focus of online sessions, and troubleshooting for common issues that may arise.

The goal of this workshop is to increase therapist's comfortability level with doing online sessions and to stay current with therapist communities and what they are saying about this topic. It is also meant to provide support and encouragement during this unprecedented time.
