Therapy in Masks

I just started therapy again wearing a mask and it is very interesting. My first day was Friday and I am only working with one therapist to start. I didn’t expect it to be so difficult. I don’t mind having it on my face, but I hate the lack of connection it causes. I rely on facial expressions more than I thought! I like pleasing my therapists and it makes me happy when they are proud of me. With the mask, I can’t see how they are feeling by looking at their face, so I am learning how to get better at reading tone of voice.

  1. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise, as when the masks come off you will be able to use both tone of voice and facial expressions to decode others. Even though it is not a preferred method, a new skill is still something to be proud of.
