Based on Section Feedback, the 2021 Section Networking Sessions were a success! Many of participating Sections expressed how great it was to connect with peers after many months of not seeing each other. To keep up the momentum, AALS is offering Sections an opportunity to continue hosting networking sessions through a series titled Section Socials. AALS has set aside time where Section members can “see” each other and reconnect with no set agenda. The goal of Section Socials is to catch up with colleagues and get to know members of your Section better. For questions or more information, please email Clarissa Ortiz, Sections Services Manager.

Humans are social animals. We crave connection. As we spend more time in our homes, cut off from friends and family in a bid to stop the spread of the virus, the lack of physical touch can be mentally challenging. For people who live alone especially, this extended lack of contact may be particularly tough. But just because we’re physically distant from each other doesn’t mean we can’t still be emotionally close. Maintaining regular human connection is more important than ever as we navigate these difficult times. Psychologist Sabina Read said that while we spend time at home in self-isolation, it’s vital that we schedule in regular catch-ups online or on the phone.

Managing your mental health – why staying connected is so important
