I have had the great pleasure to be interviewed by one of the most intelligent persons I know, Jim Kleban PhD. – former project manager for Facebook.
We both have a strong desire to help you understand the different mental health challenges that the COVID19 OUTBREAK (and the subsequent SOCIAL DISTANCING measures) is having on us all. We have created a video series that covers a wide range of common causes for pain and suffering that these abnormal conditions can create and how to work through them effectively.
These are uncertain times and we hope that these videos provide you with guidance and support through the tricky terrain that we are all facing. This is our 6th VIDEO. We appreciate comments and feedback on YouTube and if you know of someone that may benefit from these videos please send them the link below. Stay Healthy, Be Safe.
Note: Time Stamps are provided in the description section on YouTube. They give you the option to go to the sections you are interested in and skip the rest. I have also included them below the video right here for your convenience.
