EP. 6: Fear, Loss, Trauma and Grief: Managing Anxiety in Difficult Times
Mar 22, 2020

As the Corona virus epidemic continues, clinical psychologist and bereavement specialist Sonya Lott PhD shares her wisdom about how to manage overwhelming feelings of fear and grief in a crisis. 

Our conversation explores loss, trauma, complicated grief, resilience and healing, with helpful information for individuals and counseling professionals.

Here are some of the resources we discuss:

The Body Keeps the Score - An excellent book on trauma! 

What is Complicated Grief?

What is the Dual Process Model

Helpful guided meditations


What makes for a resilient spirit?

 The American Psychological Association identifies certain inner qualities that may contribute to a person’s capacity for resilience:

. The capacity to make realistic plans and take steps to carry them out.
 . A positive view of yourself and confidence in your strengths and abilities.

. Skills in communication and problem solving.
 . The capacity to manage strong feelings and impulses. 

If you are lacking in any of these areas, work on strengthening them through therapy, meditation and self-improvement practices.
