Vancouver Faculty Member Offers Tips to Mitigate Holiday Stress to YoYo Mama

Alyson Jones, M.A. ’96, Adjunct Faculty Member at Adler University’s M.A. in Counselling Psychology program on the Vancouver Campus, shared her suggestions with YoYo Mama on how to mitigate stress and navigate social situations during the holidays.

“The reality is the holidays do bring up a mix of powerful emotions,” said Jones, who is also a registered clinical therapist. “If we want to prepare for a meaningful holiday season, we have to be honest that we will experience feelings of frustration and stress amongst the mix. Under the pressure of the season, and the heightened emotions that often come at this time of the year, you might hit a landmine and, before you know it, the idyllic holiday gathering turns into a hot mess of emotion with tears of frustration rather than joy.”
