Mental health in the time of Covid: Facts, Fictions and Feelings

New

CPD Courses For Health Care Professionals | South Africa, Australia, Canada & The UK

In this talk, clinical psychologist Judith Ancer takes a look at the mental health issues raised by the Covid-19 pandemic. She addresses key questions, including whether there is a mental health pandemic arising from Covid, the factors placing individuals at risk, and the factors which have proven protective. Judith then addresses Covid and the mental health professional: how do we contain others during a time which affects each and every one of us as a shared experience? In the final section, Judith addresses questions of self-care and meaning, highlighting Viktor Frankl's ideas and looking at how post-traumatic growth becomes possible.


Sections

  • Covid and Mental Health: The Facts
  • The Role of the Mental Health Worker
  • Self-Care in the Time of Covid
