MGH Faculty Development Podcast


May 14, 2020

Has your kitchen become a classroom and your bedroom a shared office? Are you exhausted by trying to keep your beloved senior parent from venturing to the grocery store and your two tweens from spending 15 hours a day in front of a screen? Or perhaps your best friend, whom you love dearly, is driving you crazy by texting you endless COVID-19 statistics, articles, and memes and demanding a response? If any of these scenarios, or variants of them, resonate for you, then this session is for you.

In this interactive session Bob Bordone offers participants practical strategies for navigating conflicts that can pop up with home, family, and friends during the COVID-19 crisis. Specifically, the session will address why these conflicts can feel more intense than most and how you can address the conflict with both empathy for your loved ones and self-care for you. Participants will acquire specific tools and skills for navigating these tough conflicts.
