As more health care services are offered in a virtual setting, providers are looking for ways to create an environment conducive to health care for adolescents. Typically for in-person substance use services, clinicians must possess skills to create an environment that is private, distraction-free, and encourages young people to discuss/disclose information that is important to positively impacting treatment outcomes and/or recovery goals. Providing these services to young people virtually requires some careful modification of the clinicians’ skills to ensure engagement occurs and positive relationships are developed. Join us to learn how to develop a virtual presence that leads to building empathy, trust, and mutual respect. This is the third webinar in a five-part series on youth and substance use prevention.
