Presented by Judith Hecker, Ph.D.
The psychological impact of living with the corona virus, a worldwide pandemic, has altered ordinary life in numerous ways, socially, economically, and emotionally, as people struggle to integrate ever-changing new realities. As clinicians one of the ways in which we see the psyche attempting to integrate and adapt to a situation that feels profoundly overwhelming is through our dreams as well as those dreams that are brought into our offices. Please join us for an interactive seminar in which we will present dreams relating to psyche’s response to this profound upheaval on a personal as well as collective level.
Clinicians and non-clinicians are encouraged to bring dreams related to this period of our fast-changing landscape. We will honor confidentiality and tend to the movement of psyche during this time of turmoil.
- Describe the psychological impact of the Corona virus on an individual in terms of identifying feelings of helplessness, fragility, anxiety, depression as these are evidenced in a dreams;
- Utilizing dream material, assess coping mechanisms of individuals who have been impacted by the threat of the Corona virus.
