As helping professionals, we motivate our clients to work through the pandemic-induced collective trauma they have faced and all the hardships it has brought upon them. As new strains of the virus are sweeping across the country, vaccine rollout is lagging, and many lives are still being played out in a virtual setting, the stress and strain to the therapeutic community is causing many of us to experience burnout. Indeed, you care for your patients; but you are still a spouse, parent, or caregiver, and are carrying much of the same burdens through this pandemic as your clients. So, let’s stop for a moment and ask you, the clinician…how are you feeling?

This webinar will address the vicarious trauma that many helping professionals are experiencing because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will outline ways to help you identify when you’re on the brink of burnout and provide practical tools to keep your emotional well-being a priority, resulting in optimal care for your clients.

With the increased isolation and uncertainty facing so many in the past year, the rates of substance use, overdoses and relapse has risen substantially. But there is hope: Many treatment centers are still fully operational and able to take patients on an inpatient or intensive outpatient level. But what happens when that treatment experience ends, and the patient is faced with returning to an environment that fueled their substance use in the first place? Join us for a panel discussion that will provide insights, experience and tips on how recovery is not only possible after treatment but can create meaning and motivation.
