Since early March 2020, life as we know it has drastically changed. From social distancing to layoffs, almost every area of our lives has been impacted by the pandemic. These radical changes have occurred at all levels — national and local, individual and family, practical and emotional — seismic transformations that can leave your clients feeling fearful, overwhelmed, and worried about what the future might look like.
Taking care of your clients’ mental health during this time is crucial. This course was specifically developed to proactively address emotional upheaval and expand understanding of psychological well-being. Specifically, the course helps identify and help process a clients’ reactions to crisis by learning healthy ways to cope when circumstances feel beyond their control.
