Online Group Therapy

Learning Lab by Haim Weinberg PhD

online course 2 evenings, 19:00h-22:00h
€ 295,-
Course offered in English


The current Corona crisis forces many therapists to move their practice online without enough preparation or knowledge about online therapy. Group therapists experience it as especially difficult to move from the circle to the screen, since it feels more complicated to find the appropriate platform, to get acquainted with the technical options, and to understand the obstacles that face the online group therapist. This intensive course will give the group therapist the basic knowledge of how to lead online groups, and some understanding of how to overcome the challenges in doing internet groups using video.

course structure

The Learning Lab combines theoretical and practical perspectives and includes some experiential parts.

course objectives
