The Eight Part Covid Survival Kit
Ways to Make Your Life Predictable, Moderate, and Controllable (Covid PMC)
In the development and presentation of this 8 part educational series, based on the work of Dr. Bruce Perry of the Child Trauma Academy in Houston, Texas, the NAMI CC&I staff has been led and guided by Dr. James McGuire, a member of our Board of Directors and along time practicing Cape Cod psychiatrist. Dr. McGuire has been supportive in the development of much of the NAMI CC&I educational programming efforts including the presentations of the Think:Kids (CPS) series under the direction of Dr. Stuart Ablon of Mass General Hospital and Harvard University who often collaborates with Dr. Perry.
We appreciate Dr. McGuire’s professional guidance and advice and thank him for his time. We hope that you might respond to this series by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 508-778-4277 if you have questions or comments or have personal experiences to share. We would welcome hosting a Zoom discussion group on any one of the eight topics. Stay safe and think Resilience!
