Coping in a Time of COVID-19 (with Dr. Jacqueline Brown)

Dr. Jacqueline Brown has been on the show before. A couple of months ago, she came on to talk about the importance of Catholic fiction and her popular series of books, The Light Series. But this time, she is joining us in a different capacity, as she is also a psychologist. 

Dr. Jacqueline Brown and I discuss coping mechanisms for a time of quarantine, some of the complicated emotions many of us are feeling, and how to best take care of our kids, our marriages, our work, and ourselves in these uncertain times. 

Snippet from the Show
Turn off the news. If you can be in nature, be in nature. It’s amazing just how much being around trees, grass, and flowers helps our mental health, and even our physical health.

At the end of today’s show, I answer listener Marian’s question about “attending” Mass by watching it on TV with her family.
