Lesson 5: Social Support Networks
Note: social support is a type of stress buffer, and can also build stress resilience. Because of social distancing, we’ve created this video to emphasize the importance of staying “virtually” connected to a support network. But that doesn’t mean this example of a stress buffer is better or more important than any other talked about in the Stress Buffer and Resilience video.
After watching this video:
- Download and print (or copy onto a sheet of paper) this Circles of Support Diagram >>
- Read through the Circles of Support Instruction Sheet >> and then complete your own Circles of Support. Remember to write at the bottom one example of social support you’ll try to do creatively during Covid-19 social distancing.
