In-home therapy and home-based visits


This introductory 3 CE course covers the growing practice of home-based, home-visit or in-home psychotherapy, an alternative psychotherapy that is increasingly covered by third party insurers, including Medicare. Participants will learn the unique advantages and potential pitfalls.

Articles and podcast interviews, including an interview with one of the home-based or home visit therapy pioneers, Annette Conway, cover its uses and unique advantages.
