Learn how to improve psychological wellbeing during times of crisis.
We’re at a pivotal moment in human history.
As a global community, we’re about to enter one of our most challenging periods since World War Two.
The economy has halted, schools have shut, and there is widespread panic, fear, and uncertainty.
Not only that, but the nature of what we’re going through also requires that we distance ourselves from our fellow human beings. When people do go outside, it is important that they take extra precautions to prevent spreading or catching the virus. By wearing an earloop procedure face mask, people can reduce their chances of inhaling these airborne particles and catching COVID-19. However, people should only be leaving their homes for essential things. Others should be staying at home if possible to limit the number of people out and about. Those that are going to be frequenting their workplace should be using disposable gloves to help reduce the spread of bacteria and germs.
With the distancing ourselves from our fellow human beings and the closure of schools, many of us have turned to technology and virtual interaction. We are all looking for back to work solutions, to keep everyone going and the world spinning. Without some sense of normalcy, much would end up falling besides the wayside after all. Thankfully we live in a technological age. With the use of high-quality video chat api from companies like Agora.io, schools have turned their teaching through a screen and family members have been keeping in touch while being kept apart. This is somewhat comforting to many, but can also be distressing.
Arguably, COVID-19 is going to affect us psychologically, as much as it does physically.
And to get through it (both individually and collectively), it’s going to require heightened levels of self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mental strength.
So, in this online conference, we’ll explore three evidence-based approaches to help you become more resilient during times of crisis.
- Acceptance & Commitment Therapy; how to use ACT to improve your psychological wellbeing during difficult times – Shamash Alidina
- Existential Approaches to Crisis; how to apply existential ideas to thrive during your darkest hour – Professor Emmy van Deurzen
- Using CBT & Stoic Philosophy to Overcome Adversity; how to combine ancient wisdom with modern scientific research to help you use adversity to your advantage– Jules Evans
You’ll learn how these insights can improve your own wellbeing, but also your ability to help others too.
