Recommendations for Psychoanalysts Regarding the Use of Videoconferencing in their Practice
The International Psychoanalytical Association is working to support members so we can treat our patients and ourselves safely and effectively during the COVID-19 Virus Pandemic. Not only is there increased anxiety at this extraordinary time, but many sources are encouraging people to stay at home. For mental health practitioners, this may mean, in some cases, treating patients remotely.
The IPA offers a downloadable booklet following technical assistance to help psychoanalysts consider how they might approach remote sessions from a technological perspective. Download PDF
