The Limited Virtue of Virtual

Zoom is TRIAGE to a Society’s Isolation Trauma

Zoom is a BANDAID

This is a highly interactive and experiential workshop/discussion for individuals and teams that are back from the isolation of the recent past. It includes personal and group discussions of their experiences of the past two plus years which may have had the following challenges:

•Covid Pandemic

•Hate & Division as political forces

•Social Change – Equality - BLM; anti trans laws

•Psych Wars – Misinformation & Disinformation

•Gun Violence - Mass Killings - Policing Reform•Obstructionist Politics

•Fear for Safety – present and future

•Climate Change

•Economic Issues

•Insurrection

•Quarantine – Masks – Isolation – Vaccines and anti-vaxers

•Grief and Losses

We cannot deny that the world has changed during the past 2-3 years. Isolation has taken over the daily connections at work and schools for almost everyone. Now that we are returning to the world of daily interactions, what are we supposed to do with our experiences of the past few years? Do we try to carry on as if nothing has happened? As if nothing has changed? This is probably not the most psychologically healthy way to recover from our collective experiences.

This workshop is a chance to share our individual experiences and perhaps learn from our collective wisdom on how we cannot get stuck or lost in these experiences and move forward in a positive manner.

Attendees should be willing to share without judgments.

Proposed Session Objectives:

1. Attendees will learn to explore their feelings of isolation over the past few years in a supportive group and understand that they are not alone with them.

2. Attendees may find it easier to be back in the workplace learning they can share their experiences with co-workers without any judgment

3. Attendees will understand that it is OK to share concerns and feeling with others about the isolation and world experiences of the past two years

Presenter: 

Grace Anne Stevens, now into the eight decade of her life journey, has taken on different careers, as an engineer, mental health counselor, speaker and author, and multiple relationships as she continues to learn about herself and encourage all people to find and prevail in their own authentic lives.

Program Fee:

A fee of $90.00 per participant will be billed to each institution, which includes parking and continental breakfast.
