Theraplay for Telehealth: Staying Connected in a Virtual Sphere
The social distancing required as a response to COVID-19 has challenged mental health practitioners to come up with new ways to support clients and adapt skills to remain as present as they ever were in the traditional therapy setting. Since Theraplay is a touch-based, highly experiential form of treatment, how can this be done across a screen?
In this episode of Watching the Masters, Andrea Bushala will demonstrate how she conducted a Theraplay session via Zoom. Andrea will cover:
· Considerations made prior to facilitating a virtual Theraplay session
· How to prepare parents for the play
· How specific activities can be adapted for a web-based interaction
