Learn about mental health impacts of the pandemic and the latest on Long Covid from two psychiatrists
2 CEs available
Free for Marin CAMFT members and reciprocal chapter members!
Long Covid affects up to one-third of survivors. Long Covid involves many possible brain-based impacts that may be affecting your clients. In addition, mental health providers can carry the stress from the pandemic not only for themselves, but in the form of secondary traumatization when their clients are affected by Covid. This presentation by two psychiatrists will review these topics in the literature, with a focus on the psychiatric sequelae of the pandemic and characteristics of long Covid that may be impacting your psychotherapy clients.
Attendees will be able to:
1. Develop an understanding of the psychiatric sequelae of Long Covid
2. Understand risk factors in developing Long Covid
Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:
Define Covid Stress
Name 3 physiological signs of stress connected to Long Covid
Describe mental health sequelae from long Covid with special considerations for minority populations
