Most of us treat ourselves rather unkindly during challenging times, and in this fast-paced world, many us live off an anxious model; be work, parenting, or caring for others.
The experience of a pandemic elicits an invisible anxiety between social-distancing and connection, cocooning and isolation, survival and death. Managing our responses to our usual anxieties is difficult enough, so how do we manage them when enmeshed with shadow of a pandemic?
This online workshop aims to explore how pandemics complicate our anxieties, and offers a range of therapeutic responses to such anxiety.
The course will cover:
• Understanding Anxiety
• Research evidence on the impact of a pandemic on Mental Health and recovery
• Pandemic and the psyche
• Death during a pandemic
• The psychological impact of social-distancing and cocooning
• Boundaries and self-care – finances in counselling and counselling as a cultural resource
• Sharing lived experiences: Therapist personal stories, Moving our practice online, Sitting with fear, Moral Distress.
