In this episode of Fight Back, we talk about the holiday blues.

Our special guest is Dr. Richard Sherman, a licensed psychologist in private practice. He has been active in organizations that serve both the profession of psychology and that of the consumer. Dr. Sherman served as President of the CA Psychological Association and President of the Los Angeles County Psychological Association and was also a gubernatorial appointee to the CA Board of Psychology, where he served for five years. He earned his doctorate in psychology from the University of Georgia.

Feeling a bit “blue” or downcast during the holidays is common. But this year, many will have to face the added stress and anxiety of dealing with the effects of COVID on family gatherings. Dr. Sherman explains the holiday blues and offers tips regarding coping with COVID challenges, how to stay mentally healthy through it all, and much more.
