COVID-19 and Its Impact on Mental Health: A Time for Acceptance, Empathy and Coping
December 8, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
When COVID-19 abruptly arrived nine long months ago it affected our lives in new and difficult ways. Adults and our children have had to change the manners in which we work, learn and socialize while giving up meaningful sources of joy and satisfaction.
The science suggests that many of us are having difficulty coping, showing increased signs of worry, irritability and sadness. Encouraging news of a vaccine will eventually address our physical issues, but the psychological toll of the pandemic will remain and the upcoming winter could be quite challenging for all of us.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Michael Mazius will present important ways in which we can sharpen coping skills for ourselves and our children with an emphasis on the art and science of acceptance, empathy and positive psychology. Please join us for a virtual meeting of learning and conversation. Your takeaways could become part of your new normal.
