    Emerging with Resilience: Guiding Parents of Young Adults Coping with Pandemic Loss

    Emerging with Resilience: Guiding Parents of Young Adults Coping with Pandemic Loss

    Diane is a licensed professional counselor with over 25 years of clinical experience in both community mental health and private practice.

    In this episode Diane Bonilla returns to the Carol n Cheryl Podcast to have a conversation about coping with pandemic loss. Diane delves into the impact of the pandemic on young adults, especially students.  During the pandemic students were experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, and greater symptoms were reported in the LBGTQ community. Surveyed students reported six to seven losses as defined by themselves. College students were hit harder than we thought and maybe more so than other age groups. Diane explains why this age group is more impacted by loss. As a parent it is important to process our own losses and support our young adults through their losses. She talks about what grief is and what it looks like. Diane addresses the question:  Why am I sad when I should be happy? This question arises often now the pandemic is ending.  Lastly Diane gives us tools to process our loss and find resiliency.
