Community professionals and hospital healthcare workers, and other on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic are exposed to unique stressors and potentially overwhelming demands for their assistance. In addition to extreme levels of operational and traumatic stress, these professionals face the risk of moral injury and compassion fatigue. This program will introduce the various types of stress associated with major public health crisis, as well as useful strategies and techniques for coping that can be applied within recognized crisis intervention frameworks, such a critical incident stress management (CISM) and FEMA’s Crisis Counseling program. A Q&A period is included in this education training.
