These are some free resources that I have not done a deep vetting of these so I can’t recommend them without any hesitation. Still, I thought you may want to check them out. If nothing else, they may inspire you to do a search and help you find something new. Take care and be well.
Quick and dirty recipe for resilience
focus on the present, then refocus because most of us focus on the future
focus on what you can control
invest in your relationships
accept things are different, and accept your feelings about it
invest in yourself (take care of body, mind, spirit, emotions)
invest in your community (volunteer, check in with neighbors…these things can be done in person or via phone or online)
what are your values? How can you bring them into play in this situation?
let your creativity flow…new times call for new solutions
practice self-compassion, we are all doing the best we can at any given time

***Working with Oregon Unemployment***
Given the extraordinary public health and economic circumstances right now, Aaron Good, MS, CRC, LPC Intern is hosting a webinar on Mar 23, 2020 6:00 PM PDT with Scott Erwin, an unemployment expert, where he’ll explain how the Oregon Unemployment Insurance process works, and discusses some of the recent changes to the unemployment rules. If you or anyone you know, or a client of yours is out of work or may lose their job in Oregon, feel free to share this with them.
If you can’t make this one you can visit the page above in the future to access any others they schedule. Also, if you register but can’t make it this time, you’ll get a video of the webinar to review for one week
