I recently had the pleasure of appearing on a SXSW panel organized by Dr. John Grohol called “Online Therapy… Naked?”
Joining me were Audrey Young and Julie Hanks, along with Dr. Grohol. The topics discussed ranged from the kinds of clients we’re all seeing online to the software we use to the differences between in-person and online therapy to the details of my practice, Naked Therapy.
Besides describing their own online work, there was a vibe from my co-panelists that Naked Therapy, while cute, had come from another planet. And in a way they are right — it has come from the Internet planet with a history very different from their psychotherapeutic backgrounds.
The current definition of NT (now just over a year old) is a form of talk therapy in which the client and/or the therapist gets naked. This is a new kind of therapy bred from new ground and I am in the early stages of assessing its possibilities.
