Coping Skills Group

Our coping skills are being challenged like never before as a result of the presence of COVID-19 in our community. Sheltering in-place sounds easy. But, it is not. For those who have lost jobs, have lost working hours at jobs, are part of families with children, are dealing with the Coronavirus among family and friends, and for those living alone, just to name a few situations, more stress than usual is now part of our everyday lives. 

One of the most valuable aspects of our UU community is its emphasis on community and the connections that it brings. We will gather together to share how we are both successfully and unsuccessfully coping in our lives at the present time. 

The group will be facilitated by Dick Kessler, a Licensed Psychologist, who hopes to be able to bring to the group how we as individuals and families can use some proven coping methods. In addition, his role will be setting up the group’s structure and helping to create a successful group process. This will not be a therapy or counseling group, but a support group for all to share coping skills and strategies. 

The group will meet on the 1st Monday evening of each month between 6:30 and 8:00 PM. Please contact Dick Kessler for more information and to receive a set of group guidelines that will initially be used to guide the group. Dick can be reached by phone at 973-890-1039 or thru Realm.
