Dear Colleagues:

The mental health toll of the COVID-19 pandemic has been great. At the same time, the ability to conduct face-to-face group therapy has been limited in many cases. We are interested in if and how group therapists have made the transition to online group therapy, what the challenges and benefits of any such transition have been, how group process and group leadership have been impacted, and how COVID-19 has impacted safety and other procedures.

We are an international team of researchers representing the American Group Psychotherapy Association and APA's Div. 49 (the Society of Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy). We are writing to invite you to participate in an anonymous online survey about your experiences with group therapy during the pandemic.

Your participation would involve completing the survey found at the link below. We anticipate that your participation would take approximately 20-30 minutes.

If you are interested in participating, please select the button below. You will be directed to an informed consent statement with additional information and, should you consent, then to the survey.
