Particularly for academic students, staff, and social service sprofessionals, the world can sometimes turn us into poster children for stress management, burnout issues, and cause us to crave greater interpersonal partnership, community and support as we battle isolation. Think about it: assignments, internship deadlines; payroll issues; staffing or cliente conflilcts; delays in payments for work provided; absenteism, thefts, balancing personal health, home, and work duties; these are just the beginning of issues that can bring distress for those us who study to earn a degree, teach students, who may be employees of, or own… (or strive to own) a businesses.
