This two hour seminar will look at clinical issues that arise when clients and counsellors have sessions online, using platforms such as Zoom, Skype and FaceTime.
In particular, it will be a chance to think about and explore how 1) intimacy and 2) containment - two of the most important elements of effective counselling - can be affected by working via video call.
