Sessions and Speakers:

11:30 – 12:00 - Holiday Survival Guide - presented by Barbara Kinter, Emergency Skills

The pandemic here in the United States is approaching its 8th month, and we are now faced with it encroaching on our holiday season. The Holidays are tough on mental health in the best of times for many people, so this season is likely to bring even greater challenges. Our holiday celebrations are likely to look much different than what we are used to, which may lead to unusual levels of stress, grief, and anxiety.  In this discussion, we will explore the nature of seasonal depression and how to recognize the signs and symptoms in ourselves and our loved ones, as well as discuss some coping strategies.  

12:00 – 12:30 – How to Get your Head Back in the Game and Tap Into your Resilience – presented by Robin Farber, LCSW
