What are your predictions for the next 12 months?
Improving the quality of people’s relationships will be very important. The pandemic has changed the way people work. Too often people that that in person is what makes relationships. This is a false belief. People grow apart living together. Instead people will need to develop and improve their ability to build relationships by learning how to connect on emotions whether at work or at their personal lives. It is not about being in person, but rather how we really are present, talk and connect to people. The online model will require a lot of people to develop new skills. AITFCC has been providing online therapy since 2015 long before the pandemic. We know how to do relationship when face to face in person or online. We are helping couples and individuals at work and home learn these new skills.
