Equity Regional Training/Workshops
Online Education Initiative
The OEI Online Education Initiative in collaboration with the California Community College Online College Counseling Network has created courses specifically focused on mental health. These courses address necessary areas of consideration when working with students experiencing mental distress in the online counseling environment including assessment of student mental health needs as well as the provision of appropriate and effective referrals. Participants will take a close look at the growing trend of distance mental health otherwise known as e-therapy services and its importance for community college students. Included discussion and activities guide dialogue and live sessions facilitated by licensed clinicians in the field. These courses are not intended as permission to practice as a mental health counselor or for certification or licensure.
Disclaimer: It is important to note the purpose of these modules is to provide general information. It is not intended as formal training, permission to practice as a mental health counselor or for certification or licensure in the mental health field but rather to address the basic areas of consideration associated with the referral to mental health counseling when providing services in an online environment. Any included discussion or activities do not indicate specific solutions. Many practice requirements are specific to unique situations and individual providers, resulting in local standards and procedures. Counselors are advised to review and follow existing practice guidelines from their institutions and professional organizations.
