About the Webinar

Having a sense of meaning and purpose in life has profound effects on people’s health, both mentally and physically.

COVID-19 is doing more than affecting our physical health. It’s creating mental health challenges for nearly each and every one of us: from the trauma experienced by those working on the front lines to the stress related to losing a job, uncertainty about the future, or the loss of a loved one.

The emotions associated with these challenges are the first clue that you or someone you care for may be struggling. Giving meaning, structure, and purpose to these emotions can help us manage them as they arise.

You’ll learn effective tactics for dealing with learned helplessness, to strengthen your relationships, and to better adapt to new physical, financial, and familial environments.
