ABOUT RED CROSS LA FACEBOOK FRIDAYS
For many of us, COVID-19 has disrupted our routines and made everyday activities challenging. Life in Los Angeles is inherently social and staying apart from friends and neighbors can make the world seem like an uncaring place. But it isn’t!
The Red Cross movement has brought people together around the world under the common cause of humanity - even during this period of social distancing. That's why, here in Los Angeles, we're launching a series of interactive Facebook Live broadcasts designed to bring us all together, help you cope with the stresses of isolation and connect you with the work being done in your community.
Fostering Resilience during a Disaster: In Ourselves and Others with Dr. Baila Drucker, LCSW
Disasters are highly stressful events that can quickly become the onset of chronic and toxic traumatic distress-but they don’t have to! Dr. Baila Drucker, co-founder of Project:Camp, trauma expert, parent-whisperer and sought-after therapist, coach and educator, has a decade of experience providing sure and steady guidance to individuals, families and organizations in crisis.
In this session, she will share a framework for understanding how our brains respond to disasters so that we can deliberately activate resilience factors in ourselves and our loved ones and answer your most urgent questions about how to cope with the psychological challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
