This webinar is the first in the series, addressing the biggest concern therapists have about working in a telehealth-only format – child and family safety.  The risk for suicide and violence is expected to climb as families in conflict who are living in cramped quarters can not get space from one another.  Negative patterns can easily escalate.  This webinar addresses telehealth based strategies for monitoring risk, de-escalating negative patterns, and working with caregivers to manage crises in the home,  This 37-minute webinar is an edited version of two different virtual workshops, one led by Tara Byers to the general staff at Pennsylvania Counseling Services, and the other led by Marlene Reiff and Shannon Stalnaker at a family-based supervisor training at Wellspan-Philhaven.   The format is conversational.
