07:30PM 07:30PM Lecture: Family Matters In the COVID-19 Crisis: School: Oxford CollegeDepartment / Organization: Oxford CollegeEvent Open To: Faculty,Oxford College Students,StaffCost: FreeContact Name: Dean's OfficeContact Email: oxforddean@emory.eduOxford students, faculty, and staff are invited to an upcoming and innovative Oxford Studies program related to COVID-19. It will be given live at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday, April 6, and will include interactive questions and conversations sessions. Students enrolled in Oxford Studies will receive credit for attending. Dr. Gary Glass is director of Counseling and Career Services at Oxford College of Emory University and a licensed psychologist. He will speak on "Family Matters In the COVID-19 Crisis." One thing most, if not all, students have in common is that their family has a significant impact on their experience. This is true in normal circumstances. In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, however, family matters in quite amplified ways. This lecture will articulate the ways in which the impact of this global pandemic interacts with family matters and thus informing students’ day-to-day experience--overlapping in some positive ways as well as colliding in some very challenging ways. Some students are experiencing more separation for longer periods of time while most are experiencing profoundly more contact with their family than they are accustomed to. With this in mind, Glass will offer ways to help you understand various family dynamics, addressing a range from healthy to toxic family patterns. Locating these dynamics in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will explore ways to help students cope with the amplified challenges and hidden advantages to this situation. Students enrolled in Oxford Studies will receive credit for attending. + Zoom Campus Events
