The covid-19 pandemic is seriously challenging the mental and emotional state of healthcare workers in new ways. While treating patients, healthcare workers are simultaneously protecting themselves from the virus. The result of this pandemic is leading to anxiety, fear, sleeplessness, sadness, panic and insecurity on both sides of the hospital bed. Join us as an accomplished psychotherapist “sees” an emergency room physician and an RN who are working on the frontlines. This coaching session will give practical tips on how to manage the emotional and psychological challenges in this unprecedented time in healthcare and the world. Aren’t we all overdue for some psychological first aid for ourselves?
