Pandemic fatigue and families

Last Modified: 1/12/2021

So much has changed in the past year, it can be difficult for families to find their footing and learn to coexist in closer quarters. Dave Johnson, PhD, CNS, BC, LMFT, employee assistance specialist, Parkview Health, spoke with Courtney Washington, PsyD, CSAYC, HSPP, clinical training director, Parkview Health, about how the stress of the pandemic and COVID fatigue has shifted family relationships and communication.


As we learn to balance personal needs and professional and domestic responsibilities, it’s important to talk about and adjust expectations. We’re all doing our best, and that will look different from day to day. Mindfulness is a thoughtful pause to abandon judgment and comparison and tap into flexibility. Prioritize what’s important and learn to roll with what may come.
