Training Overview Description

The public health and behavioral health workforce are not immune from the fears, uncertainties and loss of control surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It takes a specific set of tools to take care of yourself and your team as we process the collective uncertainty and trauma we are experiencing. Self-care is paramount during a time of crisis.

Get the tools you need to minimize the impact of anxiety and enhance self-care practices.

Join us on May 19 or 20 and May 26, 27 or 28 for a two-part workshop series on managing stress and anxiety in a time of crisis, facilitated by Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT, director of trauma-informed services.

Event-specific Details

Workshop #2: Self-care and Promoting Post-traumatic Growth and Management During COVID-19 provides different strategies you can use to manage the impact of anxiety and worry on yourself and techniques to implement to enhance self-care during active crisis.

This workshop series is offered in partnership between the Region V Public Health Training Center and the National Council for Behavioral Health.

General concerns and anxieties can be difficult to manage during the best of situations, but what happens when you are trying to manage them during an international pandemic? This workshop will provide a brief overview on how anxiety can impact our general functioning, our functioning in crisis, and different strategies you can use to decrease the impact of anxiety on you during this unprecedented time in our country and lives.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the impact anxiety has on general functioning
  • Identify two personal coping mechanisms to manage the impact of anxiety
  • Learn how to set up daily routines to manage anxiety and worry
  • Provide specific tools and techniques staff can implement to enhance self-care during active crisis
  • Identify opportunities for post-traumatic growth opportunities to enhance professional development post crisis
