About the Event

In various capacities, nurses have experienced first-hand the catastrophic effects of COVID-19. Nurses have not only provided medical support; they have also been the emotional and psychological support for many patients and their families. It is not surprising that this has taken a significant toll on nurses' mental health, many already experiencing the negative effects. As a result, it is not uncommon to see decreased job satisfaction, traumatic stress, burnout, and vicarious trauma amongst the nursing community. In this workshop, we will discuss and explore how traumatic stress, burnout, and vicarious trauma shows up personally and professionally while learning practical tools to manage it. This workshop is interactive so participation is highly encouraged.
