GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

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 (transcript provided).

The course discusses such critical issues as boundaries, therapist safety, maintaining confidentiality, and the broader role of the home-based therapy practitioner as contrasted to the in-office therapist. Additional resources and references are provided for further study, but they are not part of the course.
