Webinar: Delivering Distance Career Services

Tuesday, May 4, 2021

12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM

Description: In the wake of COVID-19, delivering career services via technology is a rapidly growing practice, although distance career counseling is not new. Practitioners may lack distance services knowledge, training, and confidence. Attendees will learn key elements from distance literature and ethical codes and engage in a reflective exercise on their personal readiness to provide distance services.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

• Understand the breadth of distance services and recognize that distance service delivery expands beyond mental health and clinical counseling settings.

• Understand the professional literature that is relevant to the practice of distance career services, including relevant ethical codes from NCDA and professional organizations.

• Identify the risks and opportunities that delivering distance career services poses for both the practitioner and the consumer.

• Engage in self-reflective activities to facilitate a carefully weighted decision to purse engagement in distance career services.

About the Presenter: Dr. Heather C. Robertson (she/her/hers) is an Associate Professor of Counselor Education at St. John’s University, and the author of the book, Distance Counseling and Engaging in Telemental Health: A Counselor’s Guide to Decisions, Resources, and Practice, published by Springer Publishing Company. She has previously engaged in distance counseling practice in vocational rehabilitation clients, and currently engages in telemental health with EAP clients.
