Supporting staff through difficult times – COVID-19 - 3 April 2020 (On Demand)


Managing staff distress and worry

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on many people, from losing significant portions of their business to having staff with severe distress.

In this free webinar we will cover:

  • What should I do to help my staff and colleagues?
  • What can I say to someone that is in a bad place?
  • How can I support someone who is not coping?
  • When does someone need friendship and when does someone need professional help?
  • What is grief, depression and PTSD? What kinds of help are out there?

Anxiety and worry are emotional states that can be changed. This webinar will show you effective, evidence-based strategies to manage distressing feelings. Often people who feel distressed are told to just breathe, this webinar will look far beyond that.

The webinar is based on the latest research in distress, disaster recovery and effective treatments.

Please be aware this is a rapidly changing situation. We will bring you the latest information, even if it is not listed in the advertising.
