Clinical research tells us that increased socialization and connecting with your community is recommended for dealing with anxiety, grief, and isolation. This is counter to our now established habits of masking and social distancing. As we transition to a post-Covid world, many of us are experiencing tremendous anxiety, many are experiencing grief both for how the world has changed and anticipatory grief about our uncertain future. In this program, we will discuss ways to cope with the anxiety, grief and isolation as we try to reinvent, re-imagine and recover.
