Due to the initial issues with COVID-19, In One Peace moved to telehealth sessions only. Though this was a difficult transition at first, there have been several benefits to the practice.
-We don’t have to worry about at risk patients contracting COVID in the office
-It has made accessing therapy easier for some people because they don’t have to leave their home/work to schedule it in
-Patients have been able to provide a visual for issues as they happen or where they happen, allowing Dr. Dorland to have more insight and provide better solutions
-The previous office was small; doing therapy there with a mask the entire time would be less genuine than seeing each other on the screen up close
At this time there is no plans to resume in person sessions.
- Vaccine FAQ – an excellent summary from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) about COVID-19 and the vaccines being developed to prevent it.
- Free COVID-19 books are written by psychotherapist and author Ana M. Gomez. These free downloads explain the current pandemic and also help young kids process their feelings.
- COVID-19! How Can I Protect Myself and Others? – A free curriculum created by The Smithsonian Science Education Center, WHO and IAP for kids ages 8-17 to help them better understand the science and social science behind COVID-19 and learn how to keep themselves, their families, and their communities safe. This can be especially beneficial for parents who are home-schooling their children.
