VIRTUAL – PhD+ Workshop: Coping with Social Isolation and Anxiety in a Crisis

May 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm  |  Zoom


These are extraordinary times. In a matter of days, we have had to learn new ways of navigating our educational and occupational needs to meet our goals. This can be stressful. Our go-to coping strategy is often gathering with our social group and offering a shoulder to lean on, or accepting one. The world has been turned upside down. Spend an hour with Richard Enriquez, Ph.D. discussing ways to cope with stress and maintain social connection in this time of physical distancing due to COVID-19.


Richard Enriquez completed his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Palo Alto University with an emphasis in Diversity and Community Mental Health (DCMH). He is a long-time slug, having earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology and completing his postdoctoral fellowship here at UCSC. He currently works as a CAPS counseling psychologist with a focus in working with the Graduate Student community.

Dr. Enriquez’ clinical interests include alcohol and other drug use, religion and spirituality, mood disorders, and anxiety disorders. He values working with ethnically diverse populations, LGBTQ-identified clients, and college students. Richard believes in working collaboratively with students, helping them identify their personal goals and supporting them in their journey.
