The impacts of the global pandemic on mental health beginning in 2020 and the mechanisms through which psychologists delivered care to patients cannot be overstated. As the public health emergency unfolded, psychologists were thrust into a public health context in which telepsychology care was a core – and in some cases only – method for service delivery. Psychologists adapted quickly and met the challenges as they transitioned to providing care online.

Telepsychology now enters a new chapter. As more psychologists and patients receive vaccinations, in-person care reemerges as a viable option for some. But telepsychology will remain an important part of practice. Now more than ever, psychologists make thoughtful choices regarding the role of technology as they plan for the future of the practices.

Introducing the Telepsychology Competencies Credential – an educational platform brought to you by The Trust and the National Register that enables providers to achieve proficiency in the most common elements of telepsychological practice.

Get Started Now!

From the basics of secure, HIPAA compliant internet usage to advanced topics on telepsychological service provision to high risk and other special populations, the Telepsychology Competencies Credential (TCC) is designed to equip those beginning telepsychological practice with a necessary foundation for safe and effective practice.

The TCC is also designed to supplement knowledge for more experienced providers of telepsychological services. A number of the educational offerings will appeal to the advanced practitioner dealing with higher risk clientele or grappling with the nuances of specialty service provision.

The TCC consists of a variety of materials to help build your foundational knowledge of telepsychology. We have compiled a selection of webinars, practical template documents that can be applied in telepsychological practice, and reviews of telepsychological policy and practices. The curriculum includes a Telepsychology Primer document to guide your studies, important forms to help manage your telepsychological practice, and compilations of frequently asked questions in telepsychology.

To get your TCC, simply complete the required number of core and elective units. Those completing the TCC coursework and passing the appropriate exams can earn a minimum of 22 CE hours, and because you can choose to view all elective content, you may receive substantially more continuing educational credit for no additional cost (41 CE hours maximum)!

The cost of the TCC is only $350. Trust policyholders and National Register members receive a special price of $250 for the entire series – a $100 savings from the non-insured/member rate!
