Keywords:videoconferencing, virtual environment, holding environment, bioenergetic techniques, self-care
AbstractThis article describes how bioenergetic therapists have had to adjust their clinical work due to the pandemic. We discuss factors to consider when working virtually or by telephone as well as the limitations imposed by the pandemic. Specific suggestions designed to assist the therapist in connecting, tracking, and working with clients are described. Ways to adapt bioenergetic techniques are included. We offer specific examples from the authors and our colleagues about how to adapt somatic interventions to the virtual environment. Additionally, therapist self-care, including ways to reduce Zoom fatigue, is addressed.
