Description

Psychosocial Aspects of a Pandemic Virus 6-hr continuing education course was inspired by the current pandemic and over 30 years of experience as a mental health and rehabilitation practitioner, counselor educator, clinical supervisor, and researcher. The field of psychology and counseling must cultivate new research and training opportunities for mental health and allied helping professionals to work across all age groups and cultures during phases of a pandemic disaster. The COVID-19 pandemic and its mutant variants have increased the clinically significant symptoms related to anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, and substance use disorders. The foundations of this course addresses issues related to the medical, physical, mental, behavioral, and psychosocial health needs of persons living through phases of a pandemic virus. In addition to 5 hours of instruction by video, implications for current research and future resources are offered through a 142-page handbook available for webinar participants.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify children, adolescents, adults, and families that are at low, moderate, and high risk for mental, behavioral, and psychosocial health concerns related to a pandemic virus with intention of providing therapeutic services.
  • Explore the unique grief, loss, and psychosocial experiences associated with living through phases of a pandemic virus.
  • Explore low, moderate, and high risk and resiliency factors that occur during a pandemic virus that will be illustrated through the author’s original Pandemic Risk and Resiliency Continuum (PRRC) theoretical model.
  • Illustrate stages of adjustment and adaptation during phases of a pandemic virus and describe the impact on the individual’s mental, behavioral, and psychosocial functioning.

This is a non-interactive self-study course.

Instruction consists of 6 hours of video instruction and a post-test.
