    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.
