WEBINAR SERIES: Building psychological strength and emotional resilience!
Episode 4: Mental health and well-being in COVID-19
We discussed relational connection in a time of social distancing, and asked the question: do we need relationships? Concluding that ‘yes’, it is good relationships that keep us happier and healthier.
And that, rather than a time of social distancing, COVID-19 can be a time of social relating online.
We touched on the following:
|•||Our brains are interdependent|
|•||We pick up on the emotions of others (emotional contagion)|
|•||The stage of highest relational maturity, is interdependence|
|•||Our goal as humans isn’t independence but rather interdependence|
|•||“I am because we are and since we are, therefore I am” (J. Mbiti)|
We highlighted the emotional and psychological impact of social distancing, looking at what practical things people can do to create relational connection.
