Need to provide in-home or telehealth evaluations?
Forensic evaluations are sometimes conducted in none-traditional environments, such as jails. Some states require evaluators to visit the homes of parents when conducting parenting evaluations for child custody cases. Due to the current pandemic, some evaluators who typically meet with clients in-person are looking for ways to conduct evaluations via-webcam. Scenarios such as these present evaluators with unique challenges and considerations. This 1-hour webinar is a discussion of ethical, legal, and procedural concerns about conducting forensic evaluations in the homes of clients and via telehealth.
- To better understand ethical considerations of testing, and interviewing outside of traditional office setting.
- Explore the benefits and risks of conducting forensic evaluations outside of traditional settings.
- Help providers become more confident in conducting evaluations outside of the traditional settings.
This event is free for all NBFE members (Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluators and applicants and candidates pursuing the CFMHE credential) as well as all members of organizations that partner with NBFE (see Professional Partners page for a complete list). If, however, an attendee wants a continuing education certificate via email, then an administrative fee of $15 (members of NBFE and partnering organizations) or $20 (non-members) will be assessed.
