037 Coping Skills for Families During COVID-19 with Tanya Alvarado

May 13, 2020

Listen as Tanya Alvarado, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, shares with Michelle some helpful coping skills for families during COVID-19. Together they discuss using "I" statements to communicate more effectively, the purpose of forgiveness, what healthy boundaries are, and tips for supporting children during the pandemic.

"I think one of the biggest challenges right now is that we are wearing many different hats, roles, and responsibilities that are new or overwhelming. And sometimes, we don't have the space to process our own feelings, let alone share them with our partner and ask for what we need." — Tanya Alvarado
