Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home today (I'm assuming you're at home because.... well... covid).

Speaking of COVID, I would love to share some material with you that might be helpful:

  • A v-log on coping with difficult world events

  • A v-log on family dynamics in quarantine (skews towards families with young kids, but there is definitely material for families in general as well)

Also below are several articles where I've been quoted on COVID as well as other topics and... on a lighter note.... a new sizzle reel showcasing some of my TV highlights (my agent asked me to make one lol:).

I also wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about hosting a free online Zoom session where I'll go through some of my top tips on coping with COVID. If you'd be interested, please hit "reply" to let me know, and/or link up with me on social media! I'm on IG + Twitter rather frequently these days (@drchloe_ on both platforms, direct links are in the footer of this newsletter:)

Stay safe, strong, and we'll get through this together!

The CARE System for Difficult World Events

With all the issues facing our world today, I’ve had more clients than ever before seeking help to manage stress from things like terrorism, police shootings, or other acts of violence. I applaud people who are able to recognize this stress and want to face it in a constructive and healthy way. It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable and share that current events are making you feel anxious, angry, or confused. Recognizing this also empowers you to take healthy, appropriate action. Taking healthy, appropriate action not only makes the world a better place, it’s also good for your mental health and well-being. Read full blog here!

The CARE System for Kids - Helping Kids Manage When the World Gets Scary

When world events like terrorism or random violence occur, it’s hard enough for adults to manage their feelings- but it can be even tougher helping kids to navigate. The CARE system was created by Dr. Chloe Carmichael to help adults find healthy ways to cope with anger or anxiety related to frightening world events. To use the CARE system with kids, first remember that your own sense of calm is important— so make sure you are doing the CARE system yourself or whatever other tools are best for you. To adapt the CARE system for kids, break it down into smaller pieces and modify it for kids. Read full blog here!

Confessions of a Former Serial Dater

One of my quotes:

"The headache and heartache come in when the serial dater is unwilling or unable to be honest about it... But most don’t realize what they’re doing.

How a Couple’s Sex Life Changes When Trying to Get Pregnant

"It can be exciting if people are going about it with the right attitude.
