Family sessions via Telehealth??
Answered

Hi SP community,

Is anyone using the Telehealth option to conduct family therapy sessions? I have found Telehealth really easy to use with individual clients but am wondering about families. 

Appreciate any suggestions, insight, or tips!

    Hi Hilary, SimplePractice’s Telehealth platform does not currently support group and couple’s sessions, so if you'd like to see a family via Telehealth they will all need to join the session from a single device. We are actively working toward this functionality.

    I was surprised by this answer from support staff as it actually is possible to invite multiple parties from multiple devices.  Simply copy the link and email it to the different parties.  As they sign in they will enter the virtual "room" almost like a zoom call, but with a slightly less organized functionality.

    Kevin, Can we all see each other this way, like in zoom?  I'm going to try this today.

    Any updates on how multiple parties not in the same physical location can be on the same call?
