The session will help participants gain an understanding of why we experience emotions like fear and anxiety. It will help participants manage the stressors they, their families and employees are going through during this period of the MCO by putting perspective to these feelings during high periods of uncertainty, and when these feelings and emotions happen in the course of everyday life. Dr. Gerard will also discuss practical ways to manage these emotions and how to maintain a mentally healthy outlook to life despite having to live and work together in a confined space for a prolonged period of time.
Registered participants will be sent a link to join the virtual Speaker session prior to the Session
