eTherapy Masterclass: Effectively connecting with online clients: A free workshop (August 24)
Saturday, August 24 at 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
eTherapy or Telemental Health is here to stay. For mental health professionals wondering about adding this medium to their counselling toolbox, there are practical and clinical considerations that need to be acknowledged. Such issues include building trust in the digital space, legal liabilities, ambivalence about remote clients, and more. This day-long masterclass will help to frame “moments of meeting – even from a distance.”
Bill and Susannah-Joy Schuilenberg are partners in life and partners professionally for all but about four of their 37 years together. They have built four successful businesses over those years, including a woodworking company and three private psychology practices, one of which one was in Kuwait. After seven years in the Middle East, they returned to form William & Associates Counselling Services in 2015. Bill holds a graduate degree in counselling psychology and has recently completed certification as a sexual addiction therapist, primarily working with men focusing on the value of the group process. He is the Executive Director and manages the business side of the practice. Susannah-Joy holds a Doctor of Psychology in Behavioral Health (PsyD) and has earned extensive additional certifications as a trauma therapist. Dr. Susannah is Director of Clinical Services and focuses on providing mental health services both locally and globally of which eTherapy is approximately 30%.
