Online Live Group Session on Anxiety Report

Click on icon Session report
On February 24, 2019, MEBO's Mental Health Director, Crissan Rosalia, Health Psychologist, MSc., conducted our first online group session on "Coping with Anxiety". There were approximately 15 English speaking participants from around the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa and the Philippines. It was uplifting to see the openness of many participants to talk openly and freely about their symptoms, social situations and tips with each other. Crissan provided us with excellent guidelines throughout the session to empower sufferers with better coping skills.

Crissan has provided us with a follow-up of the session write-up while protecting the confidentiality and privacy of all participants. This piece is a true depiction of our experience and it's an easy, free-flowing reading that captivates the reader throughout. It covers identifying levels and characteristics of anxiety, thoughts, vicious cycle, triggers, physical sensations, and action/behavior.

Questions discussed were the following,
  • What makes it difficult for you to manage your anxiety?
  • What are healthy ways to cope with anger, bitterness?
  • How does one deal with long-term rejection?
  • How does one prevent from becoming a recluse?
The second online group session will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at the same venu, Zoom. More details will follow soon.
