Celebrating Diversity October

Have you been struggling with the isolation of working from home, parenting, schooling, and/or time for self-care? Join the UMGC community for a discussion of how to deal with feelings of isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Work-life balance has taken on a whole new meaning during COVID-19. Clinical psychologist Nanika Coor will shed light on how we can move through this uncertain time with a mindset that will help us acclimate to COVID-based change. Her talk will offer tools for reducing personal stress and managing relational expectations during this public health crisis. 

About the Speaker

Nanika Coor, PsyD, is a Brooklyn-based clinical psychologist, respectful parenting consultant, and mindful parenting activist. In her practice, she helps people who wish to parent in a respectful way but feel held back by their histories with their own parents and caregivers. In therapy with Coor, overwhelmed parents develop a kinder inner voice, helping them foster more mutually respectful interactions with their children without feeling like a doormat or a dictator. Coor stresses the importance of mindful connection to oneself and to the world. She believes that the roots of most personal struggles lie in the fundamental emotional and relational needs that went unmet in a person’s upbringing.

A graduate of Alice Deal Junior High School and Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C., Coor received her Master of Science in Education and her Doctor of Psychology in School-Clinical Child Psychology from Pace University in New York City.
