Coaching From the Couch; Considerations for Teletherapy Provision - Caregiver Education Recording

This is a free webinar. Please register to view the recording.

Presentation Description

As clinicians respond to dramatic and sudden changes in service provision, many feel under or unprepared to more heavily rely upon caregivers during virtual therapy sessions.  Coaching is an evidence based technique for engaging and empowering caregivers across the lifespan (pediatrics through geriatrics).  This session will discuss the paradigm shift from face to face to virtual clinical intervention, assure young clinicians that caregiver education is a BILLABLE skill, and provide information regarding the "hows and whys" of coaching including examples of documentation.
