As we have shifted events online, we have discovered a few positive benefits. Not only can alumni from across the world attend, the ease of recording online events allows us to share them with those who could not attend. Here are a few of our recent events that you can listen or watch to at your convenience.
Behavioral Health Impacts of COVID-19
COVID-19 affects all of us in our daily lives in some ways that we may not recognize. In this audio presentation, Dr. Kira Mauseth, Senior Instructor, Psychology, addresses the specifics about where we are on a larger scale with our Behavioral Health responses in the context of this natural disaster across the state, and how our brains and bodies function accordingly in this phase of disaster response and recovery. Dr. Mauseth discusses common responses, symptoms, and challenges over the next few months that we will be facing, and what you can do to prevent burnout and increase resilience factors. Specific ideas are provided about how to communicate and interact more effectively with others at home and in the workplace, in the context of COVID-19 and increase our own sense of strength.
