The COVID-19 pandemic may be stressful for workers. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions. This workshop aims to raise awareness of worker behavioral health and focuses on stresses experienced during natural and human-caused disasters. The workshop will offer information related to self-care and coping strategies and employer responsibilities to provide a healthy work environment. Understanding emotions and normal responses that follow a disaster or other traumatic event can help one cope with feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.
By the conclusion of the class participants will be able to:
-Recognize signs and symptoms of stress related to traumatic events.
