Dealing with Stress During the Pandemic
If you're like many people stuck inside during this quarantine, you can't treat it as a vacation. You are likely dealing with increased stress and anxiety about health, family, personal finance, and the general state of the world. What are some constructive strategies for coping with uncertainty and managing intense negative emotions, especially when one is living in relative isolation? How can one think rationally about continuing to lead one's life when the world is anything but normal?
Join us for another special episode of Philosophy for Living on Earth to get clarity on these and other related questions. We'll be joined by Dr. Ellen Kenner and Dr. Edwin Locke, two noteworthy and distinguished Objectivist psychologists. They'll share some of the wisdom they've acquired from lifelong careers as therapists and researchers.
