The Traveling Unconscious: Telehealth in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
Facilitated by Sara Hamilton, PhD and Tara Chivukula, LCSW
Telehealth therapy. Perhaps the perfect manifestation of our disembodied culture. There is an immediacy, an intimacy and an urgency, but how does it compare to being in the room? How does it affect the frame? Unlike a traditional therapy session, the client/therapy dyad is positioned in front of & attending to a camera. How do we work as pictures in tiny boxes?
Sara Hamilton, PsyD and Tara Chivukula, LCSW will facilitate a conversation about psychoanalysis and telehealth. Tara provides telehealth services and Sara is undergoing an analysis with a telehealth format. They will share their experiences from each side of the therapeutic relationship using telehealth technology
