Re-Engaging Post Pandemic with Dr. Tom Williams: February 22nd
Join us and hear from Dr. Tom Williams, a clinical psychologist who recently retired from NASA where he served as the Element Scientist for Human Factors and Behavioral Performance. The social isolation caused by our collective and individual responses to the threat of COVID infection has taken a toll on our social, emotional, psychological and physical health. The most common way that adults deal with their distress has been connecting with friends and Family. However, the risk of COVID created a "tension" between our need to connect during stress and the risk of infection if we did "connect".  This presentation will briefly review our need to connect, the psychological and health tolls when we can't, and identify "re-integration" strategies that have been researched by NASA and the military. Learn more and register HERE. This virtual event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
