Guidelines for the practice of telepsychology were published by the American Psychological Association’s Joint Task Force for the Development of Telepsychology Guidelines for Psychologist in 2013 (APA, 2013). Since that time, the research base to support its use has grown rapidly, particularly in the areas of implementation within particular populations, competencies needed for its practice, and ethical considerations for its implementation. The rapidly changing technological landscape and the expansion of telehealth as an acceptable service delivery tool, necessitates that Psychologist are informed about the current state of telepsychology. This webinar will therefore describe telepsychology and its role in psychological practice. It will also summarize current guidelines for telepsychology, and review the literature regarding its use in a variety of populations, including youth, parents, inmates, veterans, and members or rural communities. Ethical considerations of telepsychology will also be briefly discussed.

Define telepsychology and its role in psychological practice.
Summarize guidelines for practicing telepsychology.
Describe the evidence base of using telepsychology.
Summarize some of the ethical considerations specific to telepsychology practice.
