May 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Caregiving changes so much in how we experience life and our familial relationships. In this webinar, we will explore the shifts that occur in the dynamics of intimate partner relationships. Often the general caregiving challenges overshadow the deeper relationship needs between the caregiver and care recipient. In observance of Mental Health Week this May, join Michal Goldstein, a registered social worker, and explore how caregivers can manage some of the challenges that arise within this shifting dynamic, including:
• Feelings of isolation and guilt
• Changes in intimacy
• Feelings of disinterest in the relationship
• Tools to regain connection and intimacy

Our Speaker:
Michal Goldstein is a clinical social worker and therapist with 15 years of experience in supporting individuals, couples, and families to build stronger and healthier relationships. She is also the owner and founder of Creating Connections Counselling Services, a virtual therapy practice based in Toronto that helps individuals and families to reconnect and thrive. Michal holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Social Work (BSW), and Master of Social Work (MSW) degrees. She is a registered social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW).
