The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic are felt well beyond contracting the illness itself. Our sense of normalcy was rapidly altered and we unexpectedly adapted and adjusted our lives in such areas from working from home, homeschooling, practicing foreign safety measures and spending time socially distancing ourselves for many months.
As we move forward towards a new normal, many are feeling nervous or cautious when considering returning to old routines, going back to work or school, especially when interacting in person with several people. At times it feels like life will never go back to normal and the feelings of uncertainty are still present.
The goal of the transitions program is to help participants prepare for and adapt to life as we move through a global pandemic together. Our program will help ease the transition to our new normal as the world gradually opens again. Throughout the program, participants will be given the opportunity to identify and acknowledge feelings and emotions associated with grief and be provided with easy to implement strategies to help when those feelings arise in the future.
