Communicating and Coping through the Pandemic, Natural Disasters, Social Unrest, and Other Life Crises

2020 is a year like no other. Stress and anxiety are through the roof for everyone, as we deal with infections and lockdowns, wildfires and hurricanes, racism and protests, political turmoil and volatile markets. 

Financial information isn’t enough. To address this need for understanding the emotional responses we’re all having and learning valid coping skills in the midst of it, we developed two versions of our webinar – one for financial professionals, and one for clients. There is understandable overlap between them, yet each one has aspects that are uniquely addressed to its particular audience. 

Both versions contain the scientific basis behind our responses, including the levels and triggers of grief involved. In addition:
 For Financial ProfessionalsFor Your Clients
Communication strategies, including some things not to say, when speaking with grieving clients
 How to talk to children/grandchildren about what’s happening 
 A brief description of some helpful documents you can encourage clients to complete  How to allow even difficult emotions and support each other through it
 An abbreviated range of coping skills for you and those you work with or care about A wide range of coping skills to incorporate or hone 

Is OUR WORK Effective?

Absolutely, as proven by the immediate and enthusiastic responses that we receive from advisors.  Here are a few examples, and you can contact us for many more:

“I want to thank the firm for hosting this virtual event. The many strategies that Amy suggested will certainly help me get through this difficult time. It will be fun to try some different things I would not have thought of. Thank you.”

"I feel so grateful for your bringing us Amy Florian. I listened, taking many notes. In all the years, we have been together, your wisdom, caring, and discernment goes far beyond financial matters to matters of the heart and spirit, like today, in all Amy Florian shared with us. You are all a gift to us!” 

 “This presentation was excellent and very helpful! I appreciate the time and efforts spent setting this up for us!”

"Incredibly insightful, timely information on a subject so many of us have difficulty communicating.  Thank you, Amy, for helping me be there for these clients -- and several others as the years have gone on -- the way I always wanted to be, but didn't quite know how."
