Fostering Calm, Coping and Resiliency in the Pandemic Storm
Live Online Webinar
Wednesday, August 19, 2020
NYSED and ASWB Approved for 1.5 CE contact hours
An Integrative Neuroscience Informed Coping Skills Focused workshop drawing from a range of evidence-based psychotherapies – CBT-DBT-ACT-Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and Interpersonal Psychotherapy – for an exploration of accessing calm, coping and resiliency in the current context of the public health crisis of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Evidence of Need: Our communities are currently undergoing an unprecedented coping crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic. This session aims to provide a space to explore a range of coping strategies to help both the practitioner and our clients.
The challenges that both clients and practitioners are finding themselves in are the first of their kind. Remote contacts, social isolation, the economic uncertainty and lack of access to community resources are putting multi-level stressors on clients and their families.
Governor Cuomo has called on mental health providers in NY to provide support to the public at this time, and this session is an opportunity for providers to learn coping strategies and gain positive support.
As a result of attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Identify a Neuroscience Informed Coping Framework for oneself or one’s client
- Identify a range of coping strategies to aid with cognitive stress, emotional stress.
- Formulate Coping plans from skills reviewed in this session for the uncertain challenges of prolonged social distancing & public health mandates.
