Logging Telehealth Hours (California ASWs)

Given the current pandemic there are a lot of questions about logging telehealth hours.  Below is the latest information specific to ASWs.

How do I log telehealth hours?

The ASW requirements do not require hours to be logged under a category of telehealth because there is no maximum for that category and the category is not reported separately on the forms.  Individual or group counseling hours whether provided face-to-face or via telehealth should be logged under the category of Individual or Group Psychotherapy.

Extension to waiver for face-to-face supervision

The BBS order waiving face-to-face training and supervision requirements that was originally set to expire on July 5, 2020 has been extended through September 3, 2020.  Read the BBS announcement.  What does this mean?  Regardless of the type of setting that you are working in (including private practices), you may gain your required weekly direct supervisor contact via two-way, real-time videoconferencing.
