This is an evolving list that we have curated to address the professional practice needs
and other useful resources for the well-being of our members and the clients who we care for.
Let's Talk About It.
Please join us for the next installment of our upcoming Let's Talk! series focusing on how best to manage your practice during COVID-19.
This Friday, 4/10 from 12-1 pm, please join us for a discussion via Zoom: Managing Your Practice during the COVID-19: Teletherapy with Kids and Teens.
Please Stay Tuned for More Dates and Topics!
We will continue our discussion of how to do effective Teletherapy with kids and teens. Topics will include how to clinically address the many unique challenges coming up for kids/teens during these trying times (including boredom, loneliness, learning struggles within a new distance-learning system, adjustment to change, and so much more), and we will share more helpful resources.
Please email SanMateoPA@gmail.com to register for either of these events, to ask discussion questions for an event,
or share topic ideas that you would like to see covered in future zoom Let's Talk! Events.
