Marketing Opportunities at the Conference
The training is a great opportunity for you to showcase your organization or product to 200+ psychologists, social workers and other healthcare professionals.


Presented by the Ohio Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers - Ohio Chapter and the Telebehavioral Health Institute.


Attendees will enjoy an invigorating two-day training that provides an in-depth look at the theoretical bases for telebehavioral telehealth, and prepares licensed professionals for application for the Telebehavioral Health Professional (TBHI) Certification.

Designed with engaging teaching methods, this program outlines best practice issues, including how to legally practice over state lines; informed consent; intakes and assessment; privacy and confidentiality; record keeping; mandated reporting; federal laws, including HIPAA and HITECH Act, as well as state-based privacy, confidentiality and security laws. Topics also include diversity; safety protocols; preventing and handling emergencies; referrals; triage; and assigning apps. Reimbursement and technology choices for video, email, text messaging and telephones will be covered. Legal and ethical online marketing through social media and online practice management will also be covered in detail. Ample opportunity will be created for attendees to ask questions. Over 1,000 peer-reviewed books and journal article references will be available.

Participants will be eligible to become certified by the Coalition for Technology in Behavioral Sciences (CTiBS) as a telebehavioral health provider. To become certified, attendees will need to successfully complete a 50 question assessment. This fee for this assessment is $100; and is NOT included in your registration fee for the June 8-9, 2018 training session. Following the training session, attendees will receive a link with instructions on how to access the assessment. The assessment fee will cover the cost of the TBHI Certificate as well as being grandfathered into application for the CTiBS credential, outlined https://ctibs.org/rationale/. To receive the CTiBS credential, attendees will need to fill out an application, but the fee will be waived for the first year. After that, individuals will be responsible for the $40 annual fee to continue their credential.
