The importance of Early Intervention, especially during the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are struggling to find our “new normal” whatever that means to each one of us. Some of us have lost jobs, others are working from home, some are experiencing significant distress. Collectively, we are all experiencing some level of grief and loss due to the significant interruption the quarantine has created in all of our lives. The typical grief cycle includes denial, bargaining, anger, sadness, and eventually acceptance. But we often jump around this cycle, and there is no “one size fits all” to how we experience grief. What is important now, is to be honest with ourselves about how we are coping. I learned recently that alcohol sales have significantly increased. What stores normally sell in a week are selling in two days. We are drinking more at home, perhaps having a negative impact on the family system, increasing our tolerance and perhaps trying to distract from our fear, worry and boredom. CCH has started a program on Facebook and Instagram called “Why Wednesday” to support everyone. Every Wednesday through May and June we will invite a Virtual Visitor to share their experience to provide collective support through COVID:19. Delay that happy hour beverage and tune into our show! Like us on Facebook http://acebook.com/CallaCollaborativeHealth/ and follow us on Instagram at CallaCrew_CCH. We want to help you identify concerns BEFORE they become larger issues!!
