In some ways the situations we face during the pandemic is similar to other situations that trigger anxiety and depression. In some ways they are profoundly different. Anxiety especially and sometimes depression are about the future. Currently, our future is significantly different from our past and is unpredictable in many ways. A new perspective is to see the role our new future plays in triggering anxiety and depression. Being clear about this can helps us cope and ultimately thrive. In the context of the future an antidote to pandemic anxiety and depression is self-confidence. Let’s explore exactly what this is.

The pandemic challenges us to learn some profound lessons, like “invisible things are real,” for example. There are other lessons. Let’s explore what they are, why they are profound, and how to help our clients as they struggle with these lessons.

Workshop Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the similarities and differences between currently recognized and pandemic triggered anxiety and depression
  2. Use this new understanding to help patients with their anxiety and depression
  3. Describe the “lessons” that we can learn as a result of our experience with the pandemic
  4. Help patients identify and learn pandemic lessons as appropriate in a therapy session
