Returning to “Normal”: Strengthening Your Well-being for the Classroom & Clinical Training

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 24, 2021, via Zoom

The pandemic has been a profoundly difficult time for faculty, staff, and students, and their mental health. Many of us feel an extensive fatigue and also an urgency to continue to press ahead as we begin returning to “normal”. During this time, it’s especially important to invest in one’s personal well-being, acknowledge the many stressors that people face, and feel equipped to recognize excessive stress and anxiety warning signs in ourselves, our colleagues, and our students. This program will provide an overview of the challenges of returning to “normal”, how to recognize excessive stress and anxiety in ourselves and others, and strategies to maintain and improve resiliency.  

Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss concerns related to returning to “normal”
  2. Describe signs and symptoms of excessive stress and anxiety
  3. Outline strategies for processing feelings of anxiety and stress and adapting to change in healthy ways

Target Audience:  This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-graduate trainees, and students.

Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00.  (UNC Affiliates are considered to be faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, August 20, at 5 p.m.
