Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Ann Schiebert discuss the following:
You have said that what’s happening with the Coronavirus can have a very positive effect on relationships. What do you mean by that?
How have you advised your patients to get through this pandemic when they are stuck inside with people who have been problematic to them?
You do couples counseling. Do you see this time as an opportunity to heal romantic relationships that have somehow become distant?
Many of us are living with “stay at home” orders from our government officials. Any creative ideas for activities that could have help family members bond together?
Any thoughts about how to interact with kids who are accustomed to spending the day at school with their friends and who are now bored and irritated?
