The best description I can come up with for the past few weeks is this: it’s been weird. COVID-19 has turned the world upside down. So to combat this pandemic sense of topsy-turvy, I teamed up with my friend and colleague Dr. Sarah Sarkis to offer an interactive chat on The Psychology of Uncertainty.
We met as grad students in Clinical Psychology, and while we were in grad school, we experienced 9/11. We were students at that point, so although we wanted to be of service, we weren’t able to be on the front lines. Fast forward to today’s situation.
We’ve been hearing people compare this situation to war and to 9/11, and we decided to offer this series of live conversations as a way of giving back. We have been working in the field as Clinical Psychologists for two decades and we are honored to be able to provide whatever help we can in this moment of history. The initial call this week went well, and we are planning to host a series of “House Calls” to cover topics related to this pandemic and the subsequent mental health issues.
Here is the full recording of our first call:
On this week’s call, we talked about mindfulness, meditation, how to win your morning, and more. If you weren’t able to join us, please take a listen now and keep in touch with any questions or topics you’d like us to cover in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned – I’ll announce them as they come on Facebook and Instagram.
We hope to help folks connect through quarantine. After all, we are together in isolation.
