TAMFT Information on Teletherapy and COVID-19

The TAMFT Board of Directors encourages MFTs to keep themselves safe and mindful of others as we navigate through the coronavirus crisis. When families come to see you or, if you talk with them face to face, through teletherapy, or virtually via video conferencing over the next few weeks, the tips in this letter from our TAMFT President may help. 

If you do plan to pursue teletherapy, the Texas State Board of Examiners of Marriage and Family Therapists requires MFTs to have 15 hours of training to perform teletherapy. TSBEMFT has petitioned the Governors Office for a suspension of the rules related to training requirements and waits for Governor Abbotts approval.

TAMFT has been working diligently with our Mental Health partners during this time. You can keep up with information on the status of teletherapy requirements in Texas on our Latest News page.

In the meantime, TSBEMFT and TAMFT encourage you to learn the basics of teletherapy before proceeding and guidelines laid out in Texas Administrative Code for technology-assisted services (TAS), including specific informed consent rules for technology-assisted services. Seek out online trainings, including our free course for TAMFT members, so you can offer teletherapy as an alternate modality in light of the current situation.
