The COVID-19 pandemic has created a unique experience in which both clients and professionals share the same traumatic reality of the pandemic. What does it mean for professionals working under these circumstances, navigating relationships both virtually and then in person, trying to build relationships with children and families in a time of crisis? What do we know about from other experiences of shared traumatic realities and what can it teach us?
