Dr. Faye Mishna, Professor with the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and Margaret & Wallace McCain Chair in Child & Family at the University of Toronto presented this webinar. Dr. Mishna talks about:
- Offering online support services / treatment is critical during this time of highly restricted access to treatment due to COVID-19.
- It is important for service providers to maintain an awareness that the home may not be a safe environment for all youth.
- Not all youth are able to access or participate in online services due to lack of access to WI-FI or lack of privacy.
- Ways service providers can assess for barriers to access and ensure that online services for youth are safe and confidential.
