Dr. Rayel offers first aid tips on dealing with a loss

Nov. 11 – Dr. Michael Rayel, author and psychiatrist, offers first aid tips on dealing with a loss. With the recent super typhoon in the Philippines that devastated thousands of lives and properties, Filipinos and those with Filipino roots around the globe have been distressed and emotionally disturbed by this recent tragedy. Catastrophe of such magnitude has caused unimaginable pain, agony, and despair for everyone, but more so for the victims of the calamity. Dr. Rayel empathizes with the victims and their families, and encourages everyone to donate money, clothes, and canned goods. But most importantly, Dr. Rayel says, “It’s vital not only to care for the physical well- being but also to cope with losses and maintain emotional health amidst the pain and suffering.” He adds that maintaining both physical and emotional health is critical in successfully facing hardship and tragedy. He suggests that families and friends should reach out, provide comfort, and help them feel safe and secure. As well, letting them talk about their ordeal and details of their experiences should help put things in perspective. All the while, they should be encouraged to have plenty of rest, food, and sleep. “Build their hopes. Reassure and remind them that current difficulties are temporary and government help is on the way,” Dr. Rayel further adds.  Dr. Rayel, a board certified psychiatrist, has written a number of books and educational products. In a few weeks, he will release his latest project named Shrink series which is a series of books on psychiatric disorders and mental health issues. The first of the series is First Aid Tips on Dealing with a Loss which will be published in Nov. 2013. More news and updates here: Dec. 04, 2013 News
