Managing Pandemic Fatigue
April 8, 2021
Penny Zaddack, Psy.D.
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect our community after more than a year of disruption, many people are reporting that they feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or isolated. Although we are seeing progress with reducing the number of COVID-19 cases, many people report feeling a bit exhausted or sad, caught between all the changes already experienced and now beginning to see the possibility of a return to our usual way of life.
Here at the Midwestern University Therapy Institute, our Clinical Psychology team offers hope by helping individuals develop insight, increase coping skills, regulate emotions, and alleviate concerns through behavioral activation, mindfulness, cognitive techniques, and relationship exploration. Services are provided by doctoral students in our Clinical Psychology Program or postdoctoral psychology residents, working under the supervision of our faculty who are licensed clinical psychologists. We offer affordable weekly or bi-weekly psychotherapy, both in-person and via online telehealth sessions.
Whether you choose Midwestern University or another provider, now is a great time to take good care of yourself and seek professional assistance to help answer your questions and guide you through your options. You’ll then be well prepared for the weeks and months ahead.
