Due to the huge socio-health crisis that is currently taking place around the globe, we consider it necessary to develop collaborative programs that facilitate the training of mental health professionals from all over the world. Training groups of psychotherapists and psychodramatists in online interventions and psychotherapies has been and remains crucially important to alleviate situations that have caused suffering. The proposed task is based on the integration of concepts and articulation of techniques from different frames of reference in group psychotherapy and psychodrama. Following on from the round table in February, we would like to further explore online group psychotherapies and psychodrama, through a workshop where different experts will lead a practical experience from different theoreticaltechnical perspectives. We will have the welcome of Richard Beck, president of the IAGP and the coordination of Cristina Martínez Taboada for the education committee of the IAGP.

Workshop via Zoom with the participation of Maurizio Gasseau, Jacob Gershoni, Pedro Torres-Godoy, Mariângela P. da F. Wechsler and Raúl Vaimberg. 

Participatory workshop:

We propose to hold an interactive, open, and free videoconference by Zoom to explore new contributions in the field of theory and technique in online interventions in Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama. The idea of the workshop is to make a brief introduction of the participants, the coordinators, and the tasks, and then work through breakout rooms in groups of 8 to 20 participants. These groups will be led by experts in different theoreticaltechnical perspectives of interventions and online psychotherapies. After 90 minutes of work, we would meet again in a large group to share the different experiences of the medium-sized groups and debate openly.
