Online Workshop – Two (2) CE Credits

Fee: $29/person

Featured Presenter: La Keita D. Carter, PsyD

Course Description: This past year has not been easy…for anyone. However, it’s been especially hard on the healthcare industry. We often focus on first responders in healthcare, and this focus is necessary. However, they aren’t the only providers who experienced the harsh realities of 2021. Treatment providers (or middle responders) took on much of the brunt of the pandemic and socio-political unrest that we experienced. This workshop will focus on understanding the data that we have from 2020-2021 and considering techniques and interventions that we need to engage to protect our own mental health as well as the mental health of our patients/clients.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this presentation, the participant will:

  • Analyze mental health statistics and data from 2021.
  • Apply concepts like compassion fatigue and burnout to the therapeutic relationship.
  • Discuss techniques that mental health providers can engage to support their own mental health and model healthy living for their patients/clients.
