We are coming up on a year of isolating, keeping our distances and staying safe at home. Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) will host a KFPL Live session that will talk about stress, and how to find some relief.
“It can be very unsettling to live with uncertainty for an extended period, feeling that one has little control over one’s circumstances,” said Anne Hall, Librarian, Programming & Outreach at KFPL, in a media release dated Friday, Jan, 22, 2021. “While each person’s situation is unique, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant an increase in stress for all of us, particularly as we experience increased isolation during the most recent lockdown.”
Angie Wellman is a Canadian Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with a private practice in Belleville, according to the release. She works with individuals experiencing stress, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship concerns, and life transitions. Kingston Frontenac Public Library said they are pleased to host Angie for a 90-minute Zoom presentation on Managing Stress During Uncertain Times in February.
According to the release, participants will learn about the stressors that the pandemic has brought our way, how stress affects us, and about specific tools to help manage stress and to support ourselves during this time. KFPL says these tools will be adaptable for adults and for the children in their lives. There will be time for questions at the end.
This online presentation will be offered twice: on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021 at 2 p.m., and again on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2021 at 7 p.m. Both presentations will be the same and both will be open to adults.
Register online at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. A Zoom link will be emailed immediately upon registration. KFPL says participants will need to download the latest version of Zoom in advance to whichever device they’ll be using during the presentation.
