Social Connection with Physical Distance: Meeting the Challenge

07:30 PM - 08:30 PM CT
Additional Details

Attachment theory and research shows that, from early life onward, our best means of managing emotional distress is maintaining close emotional bonds.


Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, we face the most challenging combination: We are directed to maintain distance when we are highly stressed and in most need of the comfort that closeness brings.


This webinar will focus on virtual connections, ways of connecting internally with comforting memories and images, spiritual connections and activities that maintain physical and emotional wellness. We’ll also share resources for social connection in the face of physical distancing. Participants will have an opportunity to share experiences and ideas.


Presenters will be Cynthia Mulder, LCSW, Janice Poplack, LCSW, and Jon G. Allen, PhD.
