The professional, personal, and organizational stresses brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic can create new mental health challenges or intensify existing ones. Social isolation separates us from the community and work that would otherwise be significant coping strategies. How can arts leaders support themselves as well as provide support for staff members? Adam Reynolds is a drama therapist and social worker in NYC who works with individuals, groups, and organizations that have experienced traumatic events. He will offer some basic guidelines about navigating issues likely to emerge during the pandemic crisis and then facilitate a conversation with members about what issues they may have experienced within their organizations.
