Keeping Safe and Connecting with Your Tribe: Holidays in the Time of Coronavirus
Online professional training with CE credits
Celebrating the holiday season in 2020 brings a lot of complexity – not to mention a good amount of sorrow and unsettling feelings to our houses and hearts.
Recognizing that the holidays sometimes do not duplicate the idealized greeting card perfection that is so often placed in front of us, we have offered “blue holidays” and “blue Christmas” programs in past years that recognize the struggles of people who are alone, who have suffered a recent loss or otherwise are not feeling jolly or happy. This year, we contend with another challenge: celebrating the season in the age of the coronavirus pandemic, when we are told that gathering in large groups, or even most kinds of groups, may be dangerous to our health or the health of those we love.
Yet, how to we belong? How do we create a season that is meaningful and connected? How do we celebrate if funds are short and the gift list is long? Can we stay apart and still feel together?
In this online training workshop from 10 a.m. to noon (Eastern Time) on Friday, Dec. 11, we explore ways that we, as helpers, can support our people to find meaning and respite in the holiday season, as well as nourishing ourselves in our important work.
We will especially look at how to make family, party and holiday Zoom meetings more energizing and interesting – even if we are feeling “Zoomed” out! – and how to keep physically safe and emotionally grounded, whether you are celebrate alone or with others.
