Effective Practices When Counseling
in a Virtual Format
Most of us have been trained how to provide counseling in a face-to-face setting. Yet COVID has required us to provide counseling virtually, and it may feel unnatural and less personal when providing counseling in such a format. Our presenter has been providing counseling in this format (by choice) for several years. She shares the things she has found to be most effective when counseling virtually.
There will be time for audience questions and for sharing the things you have learned over the last few months about providing counseling virtually. This workshop will also be beneficial for pastors who are also engaging in pastoral counseling through virtual means.
