Coping with COVID Stress, a talk with Dr. Michael Groat

December 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Online

The days are getting colder and darker and the pandemic seems never-ending. How does one cope with not only the stress of COVID, but the upcoming holidays and the prospect of more social isolation? New Canaan Library is pleased to offer a presentation by Michael Groat, Ph.D., Chief Clinical Officer for Silver Hill Hospital where he will speak about the many aspects of stress during COVID, including external forces that can lead to the “stress pile up” especially during the holidays.


Michael Groat, PhD, is the Chief Clinical Officer of Silver Hill Hospital, a Yale-affiliated, private, non-profit hospital located in New Canaan, Connecticut. Dr. Groat completed a 4-year postdoctoral fellowship in psychodynamic psychotherapy and family systems at the Austen Riggs Center, studied psychoanalysis at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies, Houston, and was associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Baylor College of Medicine, where he also served as the Director of Adult Services at the Menninger Clinic.
