Russell Library Job and Career: Finding the Positives in the Pandemic Online

Finding the Positives in the Pandemic: 

This has been a time of upheaval and stress. In this virtual workshop, Diane Lang will discuss items like


  • Best ways for each of us to cope with change and loss.


  • Effective emotional tools to use during this time of upheaval.


  • Positive ways people can deal with feelings of loneliness and isolation.


  • The happier you are, the more resilient you are. How a person can release anger, frustration and resentment.


  • How can people best handle long-distance forced separations when they are trying to build or sustain loving relationships during this crisis?


  • What are sustainable happiness habits that are effective both during the pandemic and after it ends?


  • How can we achieve post-traumatic growth once the crisis has ended?
