    We are living through an unprecedented time of an international pandemic, a collective trauma of a kind the world has not experienced before. It is also an individual trauma, and each of us is responding differently to their particular circumstances, fears and concerns. We and our clients are separated from loved ones, and prevented from participating in the social gatherings and activities that normally sustain us. Some of us have lost a loved one in this time, and have been unable to attend their burial or rituals that support the grieving family. Some of us are more exposed to risk than others, if our work requires direct client contact. In addition, the recent months have also been a time of tremendous social and political upheaval. All of these coalescing crises have potentially increased stress and anxiety, as adding to the fear of contracting the coronavirus, there are feelings of uncertainty and trepidation about how it will all impact us personally, nationally and globally, economically and socially.  We are all in this together, and this presentation will address how to enhance resilience among our clients and among ourselves. Sharing lessons from research about trauma and resilience, as well as from positive psychology, the presentation will offer pragmatic tools to help manage anxiety and increase adaptive functioning.

    In Our Own Voice: Older Adults and Mental Illness

    In collaboration with the NYC Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), we will present In Our Own Voice - a unique and powerful presentation offering insight into the hope and recovery possible for people living with mental illness.  Two older adults with mental health conditions will share their personal stories, humanizing this misunderstood topic by demonstrating that it’s possible – and common – to live well with mental illness. 

    Featured Speakers:

    Cynthia Scott is a tireless mental health advocate and community educator who has been a part of the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City for over a decade. Full bio here

    Glenn Speer grew up in Montclair, New Jersey and works in journalism and publishing.  He received a Ph.D. in History from the City University of New York Graduate Center and taught History aboard a US Navy aircraft carrier somewhere out on the Mediterranean.  Full bio here
