SAN DIEGO, April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliant International University has launched the Alliant Virtual Café, a digital gathering place to support each other as we face the implications of the COVID-19 crisis. The Virtual Café features sessions with Alliant's faculty experts in psychology, education, forensics, business, and law, and serves as the home to:

  • Video sessions with our experts on topics such as Harnessing Emotional Contagion, Talking to Kids About a Pandemic, When Home Becomes School: Educating Children During COVID-19, and Coping with Cabin Fever for Couples and Families
  • Resource links with advice for self-care during quarantine, best tips for working from home, and mitigating financial insecurity
  • An "Ask an Expert" form through which anyone can ask our leading experts any questions, from "How can I build a stronger relationship with my partner while we are stuck at home?" to "How can I ensure that my concern doesn't turn to panic?"

This café is open and available to any and all who may need it. Alliant recognizes this as a vital time to continue our mission as a Public Benefit institution, to provide our communities with the guidance and support that we are uniquely positioned to offer, and to help us all navigate the many social impacts of this pandemic.   

"Through the Alliant Virtual Café, we are supporting our communities, offering the expertise of our faculty, and providing connection and guidance," said Andy Vaughn, president of Alliant International University. "Together, we cope with our new normal, thrive through adversity, and begin our journey toward recovery after enduring a once-in-a-lifetime global health crisis."

Associate Provost Dr. Diana Concannon spearheaded this initiative and is leveraging her decades of experience in training first responders and frontline workers in psychological first aid. "The magnitude of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic renders it vitally important that we stay connected, stay supportive, stay informed, and seek and provide what we can in order to positively impact our communities," said Dr. Concannon. "Our investment in ourselves and in each other now will reverberate in our recovery and resilience in the months and years ahead."
