Online groups at the time of coronavirus

Autori: ,

This paper describes how the 2020 covid-19 pandemic forced group therapists to experiment with telepsychology in order to conduct online group therapy sessions. This experiment, although implemented out of need, revealed itself rich in stimuli and opportunities. The paper includes an account of the clinical experience developed within the PerFormat Salute network of practice centers, which hosts over 60 TA therapy groups across Italy. Among the most interesting aspects taken into account are the new ways our clients express their emotions and manifest their bodily presence in an online group therapy setting.
