Group Therapy during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Groups have continued to meet and grow despite the COVID-19 pandemic, because we were able to safely move our group work over to zoom!
Yes! Your teen does not want to have another zoom link added to her week. But, this zoom meeting is vastly different from her school experiences.
We pull creativity into the room, using tools like Jam Board or Tabletop Simulator to still make the group fun, creative, and engaging.
We talk about coping skills that she can access right there in her room, drop GIFS into the group chat to express how they're feeling, and teach the girls how to resource ways to regulate emotion, build community, and express feelings despite the limitations this pandemic has handed us.
We use the zoom platform to our advantage, so that the meeting time continues to feel very engaging and supportive.
