Great end of year for all. May you not need moral, emotional, psychological assistance even in 2016! After all we are one of a liveaboard kind!

Re: Create A Liveaboard Helpline

Goosebumps,

Good on you for putting forth your idea. Doesn't hurt to float it around. Maybe it makes sense and maybe not, I don't know. I applaud you for taking the gaff well.

My Wife is a counselor (LSCSW) and trained psychoanalyst. She is converting her land practice to a phone practice so we can live aboard and travel. Part time work, analysis by phone.

When she looked into doing this she found there were many legal roadblocks as in the US someone doing "counseling" is regulated by the state. So you need to be licensed by the state you practice in. If you are doing "counselling" over the phone you need to be licensed in the state were the patient is AND in the state you are in. Also, the state regulatory authorities have many requirements for the physical place where you practice. For example, she has to do periodic fire drills where she sounds the alarm, runs outside to her muster point, and counts to see if she is all there. I kid you not.

Since many patients receive some insurance support or state subsidy then the provider must be licensed and all these rules kick in. So "counselling" via telephone is almost impossible.

Psychoanalysis is not so regulated, but no insurer, private or state, will pay for analysis. So her practice will be strictly "fee for service" psychoanalysis. Then all is legal and above board. But she had to give up many clients.

Canada, OTOH, has a completely different outlook on the matter and seems to encourage "telemetry health" as it is called.

So you see the legal and regulatory landscape is quite complex.

Happy New Year.

I have to be honest I stopped drinking almost completely some years back, but now, I am drinking more tan I should. Juicy bit of info is that I am counsellor specialized in dry out therapies! I got it under control though as I cannot acceot solving orobkems or stress situations with alcohol or drugs. To me the liveaboard cruising life in East Africa is mist therapeutic but may cause others to become heavy alcoholics.
