Confer
Providing Psychotherapy in a Digital Era - the relational and neurobiological implications

With speakers Linda Cundy, Catherine Knibbs, Dr Andrea Marzi and Dr Gillian Isaacs Russell

Saturday 24 June 2017


We live in a rapidly changing technical environment that offers many new ways of communicating with others. While virtual relationships become increasingly normal, this is quickly impacting on the practice of psychotherapy. Online sessions are a growing trend that will enable many people - especially those who are geographically isolated, unwell or short of time - to have the therapy they couldn't otherwise access. But what are the emotional, neurobiological and interpersonal implications of this new kind of intimacy? Are we evolving a new genre of therapy across theoretical fields, which has different parameters, boundaries, possibilities or constraints? We will unpack the issues.
