Virtual Therapy 101: Q&A with Joe Kanengiser

Event Date:

March 27, 2020

Event Time:

4:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a new and unique challenge for many therapists: the ability to connect with clients face-to-face will be drastically impacted in the foreseeable future. If you’re a therapist that is now having to transition to virtual options for your clients, you are not alone. At Chicago Minds, our mission is to build a supportive community for mental health professionals, and that includes helping you navigate through challenging times like this.

We invite Joe Kanengiser, LCSW, who has many years of experience in conducting video therapy online, to share his expertise on the subject.

Joe will be covering a variety of topics related to telehealth, including:

  • Unique issues related to consent, such as risks of technology and use of email/phone in a far more expanded way than what most of us are used to with traditional practices.

  • Expectation setting with clients, including addressing inevitable disruptions in sessions (technological and otherwise).

  • Creating a positive/focused emotional and physical environment for yourself and your clients

  • Managing and understanding distractions (for yourself and your clients)

  • Unique privacy concerns

  • Safety and risk management

  • Helping existing clients adapt

  • Self-care techniques specifically related to Telehealth

  • Clinical practices, such as: making up for reduced ability to observe body language/non verbals, directive/active practice, how to approach very triggering conversations/situations.

  • Open discussion on questions relating to Telehealth
