The Corona Virus: Coping with Fear and Uncertainty Read original article by Suzanne Phillips, Psy.D., ABPP HERE Facing unknowns is very difficult. In the face of an epidemic, we are uncertain how to respond. Threatened by contagion, terrified by unknown risks, we move into survival mode. We worry. We ruminate. We have the urge to connect and the fear of contamination. We want to lock the door; but fear isolation. We become saturated with media warnings and shaken by shards of frightening information and even conspiracy theories.

CenterPointe Hospital is pleased to announce that Amanda E. has been named the January 2020 On Pointe Employee of the Month!

Social Work Month is a time to celebrate the great profession of social work. As we enter a new decade it is important to look back and honor the powerful, positive impact the social work professional has had on our society for generations. We also want to spotlight the life-affirming work that social workers from all generations – from the Greatest Generation to Generation Z – are doing. And, since NASW is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2020, Social Work Month is a great opportunity to remind social workers of the important work NASW has been doing for decades and the need to join them.
