Prior to COVID-19, telehealth was often used as an alternative to in-person care, to maintain continuity of care, or in combination.  Given the current climate of COVID-19 and the rapidly changing landscape of treatment implementation, telehealth has become the go-to method of delivery for mental health services. Telehealth has become useful for providing cognitive behavioral therapy to young children to adults, and in various formats (i.e., individual, group, intensive). This quick demand for telehealth need has also placed pressure on improving regulations and laws related to telehealth within and across state lines. This webinar will describe examples of how telehealth can be used to provide evidence-based care in clinical and research settings for a variety of disorders and presentations. Examples of cases using telehealth with evidence-based treatments will be presented. Ethical considerations when using telehealth such as consenting, privacy, HIPAA compliance, interjurisdictional practice, and appropriateness of clients for telehealth services, particularly the changes that may have occurred regarding COVID-19.

Learning Objectives:
1.    Present current research base and clinical practice of telehealth for evidence-based treatments.  
2.    Describe adaptations to treatment when conducting evidence-based care via telehealth.   
3.    Discuss ethical considerations and privacy concerns when implementing evidence-based care via telehealth.
