Fri., June 5: CONNECT Electronic Referral System Training for therapists, online. 12 – 1 p.m. Instead of spending precious minutes on the phone or social media to see who is open to take clients, CONNECT will show you which therapists are available now and will let you filter based on the type of insurance accepted. You’ll also be able to read a description of everyone’s specialties. Your account to receive referrals in CONNECT can be turned on and off based on whether you have available appointments, however you will always have the ability to send referrals on behalf of your clients. The more therapists on CONNECT, the easier it will be to connect clients to therapists and get them the help they need.
