Stress & Resilience During COVID

Episode 22, Season 1 | March 10, 2021

Show Notes

In a year where every one of us has experienced the loss of normalcy, safety and independence, we are feeling the effects of psychological and physiological fatigue. Stress can manifest itself in a variety of physical, emotional and behavioral symptoms, which can make it harder for kids to learn and contribute to risk of developing mental health difficulties. Tune in as Patty Crisostomo, PhD, Clinical Program Manager and Licensed Psychologist at CHC, explains our bodies’ stress response during COVID and how we can build resilience during challenging times. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of why you (and your child) feel the way you do, a sense of self-validation and a doctor’s orders to “be kind to yourself.”
