"Home for the holidays" rings differently this year

Resources to help you and your clients plan for emotional wellness during the pandemic

As you’re all too aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered our social lives. For many people, this holiday season will be the first time they have been confronted with empty chairs at the table because loved ones cannot or are unwilling to attend family events. Cherished traditions and religious events may have been canceled due to the virus, with no clear end in sight to social distancing restrictions. People who live alone or far from family, or who have lost loved ones, may find holidays especially difficult.
