The provision of telehealth counseling services has exploded since the COVID-19 pandemic thrust the U.S. into a total alteration of daily life. Many counselors are feeling the effects of learning to navigate telehealth quickly during this crisis in order to maintain continuity of client care. The purpose of this presentation is to provide humanistic counselors with tools to feel better equipped to provide effective counseling services virtually for their clients. This presentation will be a dialogue among participants as the presenters will engage in discussion related to telehealth logistics, benefits, and challenges. The presenters will actively process the impact of virtual sessions on core humanistic principles related to the therapeutic relationship, demonstrating empathy, and maintaining congruence with clients. Ethical and legal ramifications of telehealth will also be discussed. Lastly, presenters will share creative counseling interventions to use virtually when working with individual clients (of all ages), couples, and families.

Learning Objectives:

1) To present an overview of telehealth from a humanistic perspective including logistics, benefits, challenges, and methods to establish and maintain the therapeutic relationship virtually.

2) To discuss ethical and legal issues surrounding telehealth services.

3) To present creative interventions to utilize through telehealth to engage clients (both adults and children), couples, and/or families.
