Managing Family Dynamics During COVID-19:
A Roundtable Discussion
 
Thursday, June 11, 8:00pm EST
 
Presented by:
Dr. Suzanne Phillips and Dr. Craig Haen
 
 
On Thursday, June 11th, 8:00pm, VOICES hosted an informative roundtable discussion, “Managing Family Dynamics During COVID-19,” with guests Dr. Suzanne Phillips and Dr. Craig Haen, Co-chairs of the American Group Psychotherapy Association’s Community Outreach team. The program is part of VOICES COVID-19 Response Program Webinar Series. The discussion was moderated by VOICES Executive Director, Mary Fetchet, LCSW.
 
Social-distancing, due to the pandemic, has impacted relationships with grandparents, partners, children of all ages, and peers. It has changed the social dynamics within the family unit and beyond, often creating isolation and uncertainty.
 
The webinar focused on managing family dynamics during uncertain times and built upon topics that were covered by Dr. Phillips and Dr. Haen prior presentation, “Coping with COVID-19 with Echoes of 9/11: Pain and Possibilities.”
 
The roundtable discussion explored how to navigate interpersonal relationships in the “here and now,” as families begin to emerge from sheltering in place. The panel discussion explored topics such as:
 
  • Couples navigating new dynamics in their partnerships
  • Parents talking to their children of all ages about risks related to COVID-19
  • Integrating aging parents/grandparents into family life, while also keeping them safe
