Due to the many unknowns surrounding COVID-19, many people may be experiencing increases in negative emotions like fear and anxiety.

For some, the event may even lead to individuals remembering past trauma. Faith and community leaders themselves may be experiencing some of these same challenges.

This webinar is designed to help participants know how to recognize, acknowledge, and then respond to higher levels of fear and anxiety in individuals. It will also help guide leaders in asking appropriate questions to ascertain the impact of trauma in people’s lives, and suggest responsive strategies.

Finally, the goal of this webinar is to help you understand what research tells us may be coming as a result of the pandemic, the perspective of mental health professionals in this moment, and what faith leaders are preparing to address.
