Engaging Children and Teens in Telebehavioral Health Sessions: The Basics

Opportunity Overview

October 28, 2020 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This is a virtual event.

Telehealth sessions has the potential to help many people, especially as they navigate loneliness due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For children and teenagers, in particular, who are undergoing brain, and other, developmental changes, ensuring telehealth sessions are engaging is paramount because without strong incentives to return and actively participate, counseling and behavioral modification improvements aren’t as likely to take shape. The Indian Health Service will present the above-referenced webinar, which will go over educate attendees according to the following objectives. Though targeting the American Indian/Alaska Native youth populations, these information and strategies are applicable to other populations too.

1. Employ four basic methods to engage youth in a Telebehavioral health visit.
2. Prepare an interactive session before the youth enters the room that fosters youth engagement.
3. Apply several effective Telebehavioral health strategies when working with disengaged youth.
