Webcast: Managing Stress: Grounding Strategies for Dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic, 4/1/2020

About this forum

In this forum, Drs. Amantia Ametaj and Dr. Kristina Korte discuss ways to manage uncomfortable emotions that inevitably arise for almost all of us when coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and the needed public health measures to contain it. They provide a brief review of why uncomfortable emotions may come up, how to better understand what you are feeling, and ways to ground yourself in the moment. This presentation is followed by a review of some exercises everyone can try at home and the rationale behind how they can be used. The forum concludes with a question and answer session moderated by Dr. Archana Basu.
