About the Workshop
We are all impacted by COVID-19 in our daily lives in some ways that we may not recognize. This presentation will address the specifics about where we are on a larger scale with our Behavioral Health responses in the context of the pandemic as a natural disaster across the state, and how our brains and bodies function accordingly at home and in the workplace. We will discuss:
- Common symptoms and experiences
- Challenges over the next few months
- And what can be done to prevent burnout and increase resilience factors as we move through 2021
- Specific ideas will be provided about how to communicate and interact more effectively with others in the context of COVID-19, and increase our own sense of strength and resilience.
