Cultivating Our Best Selves in Response to COVID-19: The Community Resiliency Model

This webinar will enhance the clinical practice of nurses by training them to use sensory awareness tools to strengthen accessibility to their “best-self” in service of self-care and as a therapeutic intervention for individuals and communities alike. Most psychiatric nurses are unaware of body-based approaches to reduce the impact of stress and trauma. They need more immediately accessible and/or enhanced wellness skills to cope with the unique challenges of nursing during a pandemic. Learners will be able to use the simple CRM skills for their own emotional regulation, while applying and sharing these skills to help others self-regulate daily and during times of stress and dysregulation.
