Online Psychotherapies in the Context of COVID-19: Critical and Cultural Perspectives – Keith Tudor, Julie Ioane, & Catherine Knibbs

May 21, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am BST

Keith Tudor, Julie Ioane, & Catherine Knibbs

Event Details


This event offers an opportunity to reflect critically on the rapid move to online therapies in the context of COVID-19. The presenters offer some reflections on the problem of information (as well as misinformation and disinformation), and the security of online practice; cultural perspectives, which, amongst other things, challenge the notion that COVID-19 is a great leveller; and the danger of Parental thinking and over-regulation.
