The digital age is both exciting and challenging for psychotherapy,
opening the door to clients groups previously not able to access
psychological help, whilst also providing the challenges caused by
social media and internet abuse and how these impact on the
consulting room. Psychotherapy 2.0 blows open the consulting room
doors and shows successful pathways for attracting new clients to
gain access to psychological help, as well as demonstrating that
despite initial scepticism, working online as a psychotherapist or
counsellor can be as effective as 'face2face' work: the therapeutic
relationship may be different but it remains the centrally
important feature for successful psychotherapy. It follows
therefore that all psychotherapists and counsellors need to be
fully informed about the impact of the digital age on their
clinical practice. Psychotherapy 2.0 covers the key issues for
psychotherapists and counsellors who are, or are thinking of,
working online, include thinking about psychotherapy in the digital
age, the requirements to modify training both for working online
and also the digital issues as they arise within the face2face
consulting room.This book is intended as a first volume in this
fast changing field, with further volumes intended to concentrate
on existing and emerging research, as well the diverse ways in
which online work is already being developed and implemented
worldwide. It is possibly the greatest moment of change for
psychotherapy since Freud: there is no going back, and just as we
cannot put toothpaste back in the tube, psychotherapy practice is
changed for ever with the advent of the digital age.
