2020 was a most challenging year. We endured the spread of COVID-19 followed by quarantine and near-collapse of our economy in the Spring, widespread recognition of painful racial disparities throughout the Summer, and a stressful election in the Fall. Of all professions, healthcare workers bore perhaps the greatest stress of all, by selflessly and tirelessly serving on the front lines during the worst pandemic in over a century. We have shown great dedication and resilience, and many of us have self-actualized in ways we could never have imagined, though often at the cost of great stress. This webinar will highlight the importance of self-care and provide practical strategies to invest in yourself.
At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe the importance of self-care in stress management during challenging times
- Describe cognitive, behavioral and interpersonal strategies to cope with stress
- Identify practical solutions you can use to build emotional resilience and manage stress
