Video-Based Counseling: How Communication Changes in Video-Based Psychological Scenarios Compared to Face-to-Face Settings
Nadine Schaarschmidt, PhD

Counseling via e-mail or chat is fairly well established within the German psychological profession; video-based therapy, however, is not yet common due to the legal situation in Germany. Our presenter this month, Nadine Schaarschmidt, will give an overview of the current state of research on the use of video-based therapy in Germany.

Nadine's PhD project at the German University Technische Universität Dresden addresses the question of whether or not video-based communication in psychological settings is different from face-to-face scenarios. She will summarize the first results of her study, discuss challenges and limitations (in collaboration with the audience), and brainstorm further methodological enhancements with regard to the SPIRIT Study or other relevant research at the University of Washington.
