Over the last decade psychologists have been introduced to rapidly evolving technological media. As a result, psychologists are increasingly incorporating the use of technology in their practices.  To guide practitioners in the development of appropriate competencies in the use of technology, the Ohio Psychological Association has recently developed and implemented a document describing these competencies. This webinar will provide an overview of these competencies and discuss how these relate to best practices. The webinar will provide practitioners with practice strategies for implementing telehealth practices.

This webinar is designed to:

  • Describe the newly adopted OPA telepsychology competency guidelines
  • Explain the suggested competency skills sets required for psychologists in the state of Ohio
  • Plan for practical applications for telepsychology
