    Lizard Brain Support Group: Mental Health & Coronavirus

    Lizard Brain Support Group: Mental Health & Coronavirus

    Ken and special guest co-host Keri Weber talk through the effects of Coronavirus on our mental health. They (and the audience watching on Facebook Live) learn ways to reach out during times of isolation, discuss ways to pivot to a new "work at home" lifestyle, and examine why the virus is a trigger for so many underlying, deeper issues. 
    The book Keri and Ken mention near the end is called "The Happiness Trap" by Russ Harris. It's a guide to ACT: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
