Healthcare professionals on the COVID-19 frontlines are overwhelmed, traumatized, and exhausted. You’re putting your lives on the line, many of you are quarantined from your family, some have insufficient PPE, and insufficient resources for patients such that you are faced with lose-lose decisions. Many of you are having to see an unprecedented number of people suffer and die; sometimes even colleagues, friends and relatives. Time is short, so this brief webinar is jam packed with strategies to manage your anxiety, fatigue, and grief through the COVID-19 crisis. Dr. Jennifer L. Abel, anxiety and worry expert, will teach you at least six effective coping strategies that you can utilize without stopping your work flow. Some of these strategies will also help to conserve energy to manage fatigue. While you are very strong, you are human.
