This presentation is all about how a pandemic can cause intense feelings of anxiety regarding our health and the health of our loved ones and friends. Using evidence-based methods, it will impart skills managers and staff can use in the context of business resumption to mitigate anxiety about returning to the workplace in a latent COVID-19 environment.
By the end of this session, participants will:
- Be exposed to an accessible and evidence-based introduction to anxiety and the pandemic
- Understand what to do during business resumption activities
- Know how to have an open conversation about concerns, actions taken to mitigate risk, and how to accommodate vulnerable staff members’ mental health concerns
