This clinical workshop will explore the uses of teletherapy in the couple environment. Transference and countertransference will be described, and their therapeutic potentials demonstrated by practice vignettes, in reaching the couple on a deep level of holding. The workshop will discuss underlying dimensions of marital discord, that are keeping the couple stuck, and how the therapist creates new opportunities for therapeutic shifts, when using the couple’s virtual environment.

  • Identify basic elements of teletherapy
  • Recognize projective processes
  • Recognize the contributions of the virtual and environmental influences, such as family pets, on the therapy process
