Online therapy provides many challenges but also opportunities. One is the ability to literally view the therapeutic dyad as we shall demonstrate in the attached video.
Zoom has released a powerful new feature - immersive view. If you select this viewing mode, and then choose a custom background - you can create a unique feeling of a shared space. If you resize and move the videos of both the client and yourself, you can arrange the videos so that there is an overlap, and in the overlapping space - you can literally touch each other, place a hand on a patient's shoulder or shake hands! Play around with this, try it out and have fun!
