Co-Host a Local Training

Co-hosting an on site training allows your staff/employees to attend one of our courses at a discount.  It also drives traffic to your organization and brand.

You can co-host an event on site or off site either live or via a live interactive webinar.

There are currently two courses offered for you to co-host:

  • TeleMental Health Counseling Essentials
  • DCC – Distance Counseling Training

What is the TeleMental Health Counseling Essentials Course?

The essentials course was created by taking the essential elements from the full DCC course, allowing clinicians to receive all of the training necessary to become competent in providing counseling via video conferencing.  This course is also applicable for all staff involved in the delivery of telemental health services, such as office staff.

This course covers 7.5 CE hours, 2 of which are ethics, of training.

What is the Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC)?

The DCC is the nationally recognized credential in distance counseling.  It is provided by, The Center for Credentialing and Education, which is an affiliate of the NBCC.

This training is being offered by the Telehealth Certification Institute, LLC, which is an approved provider of the DCC training.

What is covered?

This training covers all of the Ethical, HIPAA, Legal, Technical, Clinical, and Practice Management aspects of distance counseling and telemental health assessments.

This is a very comprehensive and practical training with MANY bonuses.  All of the competencies are available on the website.

Most importantly, you will leave this training with everything that you need to begin practicing distance counseling, including sample clinical forms.

Benefits of co-hosting a DCC training:

  • Best Practice, Competency, and Risk Management:  Your clinicians will receive the most up-to-date, State of Georgia specific, and comprehensive training on telemental health services.
  • Demand: Distance counseling training is in high demand; clients are seeking it; more clinicians are working remotely; federal and local governments are funding it; and most organizations are incorporating telehealth services.
  • Marketing and Exposure: By hosting a DCC training in your community your organization will be seen as a leader in the field of distance counseling.
  • Credential: Participants that are licensed clinicians will be eligible to apply for a nationally recognized credential in distance counseling.

We consistently receive top scores and numerous outstanding comments by participants!

“It was a lot of fun and professionally done! I received a lot of information on how I can make more money as a therapist that I can take back to my company. It is a great course!”  Jan Held, CTHC, LPC

“I am glad I took the training. The information is worth every penny, just because it keeps us informed. It provides a good self-check. It has helped me notice some of my outdated practices that could compromise my clients’ information and my own. And hats off to Ray for not only vigilantly researching ever changing laws and seeking out the best services. But for being responsive to questions and emails long after the training ends.”  Laura (Pagano) Temin, LMFT, LPC, DCC, BCC, CGA.
