Covid-19 and Mental Health: Taking Stock of Your Family, Your Friends, and You
A Zoom Conversation with Clinical Psychologist Ruth Zitner
For more than a year we all have taken extraordinary steps and adjusted our lives to protect ourselves from contracting Covid-19. We masked, donned gloves, dabbed hand sanitizer, socially isolated, etc., to shield ourselves and protect others from the virus. But did we fully consider the mental health impact on those around us and on ourselves? What has been the mental toll and what are the potential consequences? As we move ahead, what should we be alert to and what should we do?
Our conversation will be led by Ruth Zitner, a clinical psychologist who practices in DC. Ruth specializes in clinical psychology and the intersection of mental health and family law. She has a private practice in Washington, DC. where she sees children, teens, adults, and families. Her son is a 2020 Oberlin grad.
Liz Gregg ’90, will serve as program moderator. Liz is a clinical social worker who has worked in a variety of treatment settings, most recently in a sex therapy practice located in Silver Spring, Maryland. She also is parent to Oberlin student Sam, who is graduating this spring.
