Abstract

In December, 2020, the editorial team of the New England Journal of Relational and Systemic Practice, sent a survey to the membership of the New England Association for Family and Systemic Therapy about the impact of COVID-19 on the practice of therapy. Upon reviewing feedback, they asked three significant questions regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the practice and future of therapy:

1) What are the positive and negative effects of therapists doing therapy online over an extended period of time?

2) How is therapy during the pandemic going to change therapy moving forward?

3) How do we prepare clinicians—as teachers, as supervisors, as colleagues—about these changes?

The following article is written in an interview format, where each of the presenters discuss their perspectives on these three questions.
