Telemental Health: How to Increase Access to Care and Touch Lives Through the use of Technology
Social workers have developed excellent reputations for helping people overcome life’s hurdles. They are found in schools and colleges, hospitals, veteran centers, mental health facilities, local and federal government and even in corporate America. Furthermore, social workers have and continue to shed light on and combat social injustices that threaten humanity. However, many are under paid and do not receive financial compensation comparable to other helping professions such as nurses, psychologists, police, psychiatrists, and teachers. This in return causes a percentage of social workers to occasionally question their value to society from a financial perspective.
As a social worker would you like to be better compensated for touching the lives of millions of individuals who desire to reach their full potential? Would you like to decrease your operational cost by providing life-changing therapy to clients in the convenience of their homes or confidential location of their choosing? Would you like to be better equipped to use technology to increase your profit margin? If you answered yes to either one of the aforementioned questions, this workshop was designed specifically for you. In this informative 3-hour workshop, Dr. Dwayne L. Buckingham will guide you in discovering how Telemental Health has made it possible for social workers like you to help your clients reach their full potential while also leveraging your time, decreasing your operational cost, maximizing your profit margin and getting the compensation that you deserve.
