This paper is based on an invited talk that was part of the international webinar Dialogues on Psychotherapy at the Time of Coronavirus presented by Instituto di Gestalt HCC Italy. The talk was on the Buddhist Psychology informed Gestalt Therapy (BPGT) approach developed by the authors. It included a brief overview of BPGT then focused on one aspect of it. During this global pandemic, psychotherapists are in need of new resources and perspectives to sup-port us in our work and to meet the challenges patients are now bringing to the therapeutic en-counter. The BPGT approach has particular relevance in this time of unprecedented crisis when humanity is being confronted on a daily basis with the universal challenges directly ad-dressed in Buddhist psychology. These include Buddhist psychology’s understanding of the reality of impermanence, how this relates to suffering, and ways to identify and work with this suffering, as we described in the talk and present here.
