As we are bombarded with bad news about the consequences of the economic crisis it may seem difficult to remain detached from events as we go about our lives. People naturally reflect on the consequences for themselves of the current climate of uncertainty, and for some this causes worry, distraction, increased stress, even anxiety and depression.
While we can do little about global events, we can all do something about how events, both at work and at home affect us personally. This requires a pragmatic stance linked to robust psychology. We can learn the skills that will help us weather the troubles without becoming incapacitated by worry, or sucked into the doom and gloom.
This one-hour session suggests ways to take both practical steps and psychological precautions that will help individuals through these difficult times.
