Our communities are currently undergoing an unprecedented coping crisis through the COVID-19 pandemic.  Both clients and practitioners are finding themselves contending with a complex bio-psycho-social challenge on an individual, familial and community level. Remote contacts, social isolation, economic uncertainty, and lack of access to community resources are putting multi-level stressors on clients and their families.


An Integrative Neuroscience-Informed Coping Skills-Focused workshop drawing from a range of evidence-based psychotherapies, including CBT, DBT, ACT, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, this workshop aims to provide a space to explore a range of coping strategies to help both the practitioner and our clients. As Governor Cuomo has called on mental health providers in NY to provide support to the public at this time, this workshop is an opportunity for providers to learn coping strategies, gain positive support, and explore the access of calm, coping, and resiliency in the current context of the public health crisis of this COVID-19 pandemic.



With this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify a Neuroscience Informed Coping Framework for oneself and one’s client
  • Identify a range of coping strategies to aid with cognitive stress and emotional stress
  • Formulate coping plans from skills reviewed in this session for the uncertain challenges of prolonged social distancing and public health mandates
