The Specificities of Conducting Online Therapy Groups
11:00am – 2:30pm (3.5hrs)
This workshop will be focused on working with groups in an online environment. We will be looking for answers to the following questions: How are online groups different from face-to-face groups? How do I lead an online group? What should we do differently in online? What errors and problems are already known? How can an online group be conducted so that the therapeutic factors of group psychotherapy fully work? How do we adapt our skills to online work?
Pavel would like to inspire colleagues to work on the Internet and show the possibilities and beauty of this work. The therapeutic effects of group psychotherapy are too important for many people and we should look for opportunities to create them online. The main goal of this workshop is to highlight the most important factors that will allow participants to start working with groups online. Pavel will give a summary of his experience of working in the online environment. There will then be an opportunity for the group to experience some of the most important factors for themselves. And if we have time, we will talk about the basic principles of conducting psychodrama in an online environment.
