The unprecedented convergence of stress factors leading up to this year’s holiday season is leaving many people feeling adrift and struggling to stay focused.
To help with coping strategies, a panel of three accomplished psychology professionals from Albizu University will convene for a complimentary one-hour virtual forum on “The Holidays and COVID: Coping With the Stress.”
The free webinar begins promptly at 2 p.m. EDT on Facebook Live or Zoom, and will be moderated by Emmy-winning NBC broadcast journalist and former Jackson Health System public affairs director Ed O’Dell.

The Albizu panelists will discuss ways to prevent pre-existing bad habits from spiraling out of control during the stressful holiday time, how to recognize the difference between burnout and “compassion fatigue,” and offer helpful tactics for coping with COVID-amplified seasonal stress. When to seek professional help, or help for loved ones will also be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask panelists questions.
