Here is a description of this Friday’s webinar:

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to widespread fear on a global scale. The pervasive impact of the outbreak on a humanitarian and economical scale has caused many of us to experience extreme levels of uncertainty and anxiety. As every person and every organization tries to quickly adapt to the constantly changing situation, societal stress levels remain high. Given that stress has an adverse impact on our immune system, it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy sense of perspective, focus on practical ways to adapt to the situation and respond to the outbreak with calm and composure.

The webinar will cover:

  • Strategies to tackle feelings of anxiety and stress.
  • Practical techniques for working from home.
  • Ways to address signs of panic in the workplace.
  • When to reach out for further help and support.
