More about Dr. Tian Dayton: The author of 15 books, including The Soulful Journey of Recovery, The ACOA Trauma Syndrome, Emotional Sobriety, Trauma and Addiction, Forgiving and Moving On, Dayton is known worldwide for creating the Relationship Trauma Repair RTR  therapy. She is a senior fellow at The Meadows in Wickenburg, AZ,  and is a clinical psychologist and pshycodramatist.

Dayton will focus on maintaining emotional immunity during COVID-19 — how we can build immunity to anxiety and fear. She will also address feelings of grief and loss, which are especially important to address now as many people are sensing the loss of routine, of expected events such as school graduations and vacations, of family time during the upcoming religious holidays, of normalcy and of their normal, everyday lives. 

“It’s not what happens to us but what we do with what happens that matters. Research on resilience finds that those who thrive in situations that might defeat others, have somehow figured out how to mobilize their supports and make use of them. They have a sense of reality and acceptance about their circumstances, but they are proactive in taking steps to make things better. We will be sharing many tips that will help you to manage anxiety and actively create some balance and calm throughout this challenging period, “ says Dayton.

“The issue of grief can be challenging for those who grew up with adverse childhood experiences,” Dayton adds. “Not only are they experiencing the natural feelings around loss that surround this current COVID-19 crisis, but their hidden, unconscious grief may getting ‘warmed up’ and they may be experiencing emotions of anger, frustration and feelings of hopeless and helplessness that are disproportionately large. And, because they are not aware that old grief is getting triggered into this new situation, they are having more pain, relationship issues and acting-out behavior than they may otherwise experience.”
