While stuck at home during shelter in place, we are all facing the impacts of COVID-19 every day. During these uncertain times, we are offering an online webinar series for our community to come together and look at our values and perspectives to both understand the impacts of the pandemic and how to cope with the stress of COVID-19.

Sign up for the last of two workshops featuring Dr. Kayoko Yokoyama and learn how you can help to support your family and friends who are struggling with the stress of the pandemic.

Dr. Yokoyama will provide an interactive discussion and Q & A, drawing on her Japanese and American bicultural experiences and values to consider helpful communication and coping strategies to work with our beloved family and friends who are struggling with the stress of COVID-19.
