COVID-19 Resources

IPNB PSYCHOTHERAPY OF AUSTIN

Across the world, we are all being changed by global events. In times like this, our history is pulled to the surfaces as if someone pulled out some old, dusty map; it shows us what we know of moments like these and how we can get through them. For some of us, our history is filled with escapes and successes. For others, pain and loss. For most of us, both. We hope that these resources help to hold you in this time of uncertainty. 

"Even in these unsettling times there remains a steady place of well-being deep within you."

 

IPNB Austin senior clinician, Kim Schaefer, is offering a virtual mindfulness meditation series with a sliding scale in partnership with Castle Hill Fitness  beginning May 26th.  This six-week virtual series offers you the opportunity to release and settle.  Sign up now.

Jules joins one of her senior clinicians at IPNB Psychotherapy of Austin, Jami Lynn Bula, LPC, LMFT, for a morning cup of coffee discussion over ways to be with yourself, with your partner and with your kids in this time when we are a bit on top of each other.  They both share ideas for helping kiddos, helping yourself and helping each other.  Practical thoughts and tools, as well as a fun conversation.

Jules and Jami Lynn: being kind to yourself and your people even when stress is high

Jules joins Rebecca Wong, LCSWR to discuss the impact of being quarantined at home - experiencing isolation, fear and grief during the crisis, and how these experiences work in tandem with our implicit memory systems, and the effect it all has on our relationships.

Group membership is $25 per month.

This online support group will be led by Mark Blockus, LPC Intern, NCC, CCTP supervised by Juliane Taylor Shore, LPC-S, LMFT-S. This support group will offer you a space to connect, as well as utilize mindfulness skills to support you in these uncertain, social distancing times. Meetings are on Wednesdays from 12:30pm-1:30pm.

Coronavirus and collective stress around the world. Why this moment so anxiety-producing and how can we stay resilient in the face of it.

There is a tremendous amount of uncertainty in the world at the moment, more than many of us have seen in our lifetimes. Join author Elizabeth Gilbert as she talks about how we can meet our fear with compassion, and why now is the time to remember that humans are creative, resourceful, and resilient. 

What can each of us do? This is where self-compassion comes in. Self-compassion boosts the immune system, it reduces anxiety, and it’s the easiest way to keep our hearts open to others. Some measure of fear is a healthy response to a contagious virus, of course. We want to respond to the contagion in a wise manner – with preventive measures that benefit ourselves and others.
