Participants can practice acquired knowledge in activities at the end of each skill section to extend their learning. The training includes several handouts to help learners evaluate existing telebehavioral health practices and/or to mobilize a telebehavioral health practice. Handouts also support optimizing telebehavioral health sessions with military kids and teens.

Learning Objectives:

  2. Integrate the seven telebehavioral health (TBH) skills discussed in the training into the planningand execution of virtual clinical encounters with military kids and teens.
