Do I have to have the video on during structured group therapy sessions?
Having your camera on is an important component in the group dynamics (You can turn off the self-view feature.). Group therapy is an immersive experience where you will be engaging with and connecting with others who share similar challenges with you. You may want to put in the chat box why you are turning off the camera. Otherwise, if your camera is off, your therapist may attempt to reach you either by chat, email, or phone to see why it is off.
