Stress & Resilience During COVID
COVID has altered almost every aspect of our lives, and the effects of this cumulative and prolonged stress response can affect our brain size, structure and functioning.
We sat down with Clinical Program Manager and Licensed Psychologist at CHC, Patty Crisostomo, PhD, to learn about the very individualized ways that stress can manifest itself in kids and adults, and effective vs. ineffective coping strategies.
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. Listen 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.”
