Telehealth services provide your clients with a lifeline during times like this.

But Practicing Across State Lines is one legal issue that stands-out as particularly confusing and concerning to many mental health professionals. This one-hour PESI video program will give you what you need to legally provide telehealth services across state lines and protect your license!

In this one-hour recording, you’ll learn:

  • How to protect yourself from legal and ethical pitfalls when practicing across state lines
  • Inter jurisdictional state laws and guidelines relevant to you
  • HIPAA requirements you need to be aware of
  • How to stay up to date with changing laws

A link to the PESI evaluation will be emailed to you after the training in order for you to receive the 1 CEU.

  • Assess additional resources and ways to stay current on inter jurisdictional laws and guidelines.
