December 24th, 2021|0 Comments

Milton Bradley first released the game, Connect 4, in 1974. This is a two player game in which players drop coloured discs into a suspended grid with the strategy of connecting 4 of their own colors diagonally, horizontally or vertically, while at the same time trying to block their opponent from doing the same. The first player to connect 4 of their colors wins the game. (Wikipedia). Thinking about this game recently reminded me of the “wins” that can occur when we have social and human connection.

Pandemic Culture: A Psychotherapist’s Observations

October 21st, 2021|

Being a psychotherapist during the COVID pandemic has been an interesting (and difficult) experience.
