The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a shift of epic proportions in terms of how we live life. Most impacted by the virus has been the way in which we connect to one another. As a social species, relationship is EVERYTHING to how we function in our everyday lives. We are meant to exist together, physically speaking, in order to really access the restorative aspects of our social connectedness. In these past months, we have faced extraordinary stress and simultaneous to that, loss of social connection at a time when we most need it. Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, Registered Psychologist, will discuss why this has added such a significant layer of challenge to our collective experience of the pandemic, AND what we can do about accessing and nurturing connection going forward in these exceptional times.
