Until January 1, 2017, the company was known as the “TeleMental Health Institute” and was re-named to the Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) to accommodate the US Health and Human Services changes in nomenclature. With TBHI’s 100% online professional training program, professionals with access to the Internet from anywhere in the world can have 24/7 access to the following training materials:
- Webinar (Live Events & Recordings) — inexpensive, timely and topic-focused 1-hour discussions to keep you up-to-date and fully informed of legal, ethical and regulatory updates, industry developments and other cutting-edge topics. They are accessible by computer or smart device, both in a LIVE format and afterward, in recorded form through our On-Demand Library. All webinars include a CE that is recognized by most state and provincial licensing boards.
- Certificate Training Programs — training to instruct you in the latest evidence-based fundamentals, models, strategies and technologies used in telebehavioral health. Two programs are available: 15-hours and 36-hours, depending on your need for more specialized instruction. After completing this coursework, graduates will be eligible to apply for the Credentialed Telebehavioral Health Professional (CTHP) designation through the Coalition for Technology in the Behavioral Sciences (CTiBS).
- CTiBS Credentialed Professionals — After January 1, 2017, TBHI will be working with the Coalition for Technology in Behavioral Science (CTiBS).
