Panel Presentation moderated by President Thomas Cooper, PsyD
Panelists: Kendra L. Bryant, PhD, Marshall Robinson, PhD, Diane A. Tennies, PhD, and Julie L. Quimby, Ph.D.
This webinar has been designed to promote best practices in a COVID-19 Telepsychology world. Topics of discussion will explore clinical considerations, practice management, and technological resources.
Kendra L. Bryant, Ph.D., ABPP-CN
Board Certified Clinical Neuropsychologist
Neuropsychology & Concussion Management Associates, LLC
Dr. Bryant will discuss her experience researching and providing limited neuropsychological consultation via remote audio-video as well as her rationale for, and implementation of, a hybrid in office audio-video model for safe but more controlled comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation in both clinical and forensic contexts. She will share how this model has been going for several weeks, and depending on interest, can talk about how this is all supported in a relatively paper-free group practice, with no direct contact between staff.
Marshall Robinson, Ph.D.
Dr. Robinson will present on technological considerations: software, hardware, and logistical considerations, along with recommendations for promoting overall communication.
Diane A. Tennies, PhD, LADC
Forensic Psychologist in Private Practice
Dr. Tennies will present from the forensic evaluation perspective, including utilization of videoconferencing platforms for forensic evaluations and the impact this may have on evaluators and the parties being evaluated. She will also discuss implications for the process when others are present for interviews.
Julie L. Quimby, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist, Founder/Director
Psychology Specialists of Maine
Dr. Quimby will discuss the overall implications for businesses willing to pivot and embrace remote teletherapy as a long-term scenario. She will present on projected changes in outpatient therapy for years to come, essential systems for remote therapy businesses, marketing strategies, growth and expansion opportunities, implications for training postdoctoral residents, creating a remote "office culture", and community engagement/social justice issues.
