Navigating Through the Fog: Maintaining our Ability to Think Clearly in Times of Crisis

Join the HCA community at this event, hosted by TEND and developed by Françoise Mathieu, M.Ed, RP.

High stakes, lots of pressure, intricate problems and few resources – crisis situations challenge us to respond quickly, compassionately and creatively. But how do we retain the ability to think clearly when, the reality is that, many of us are launched into crisis situations already tired and depleted? 

When experts discuss burnout, compassion fatigue and moral distress in times of crisis, they often overlook a crucial contributing factor – plain old fatigue.

In this webinar, we will discuss the neurophysiology of crises, stress, and uncertainty and learn evidence-informed strategies to keep service providers and their leaders thinking clearly.

  • Viral Hoarding: Understand our reactions to crisis situations
  • History of Crisis: Examine “lessons learned” from past crises
  • COVID Fog: What is it & how can we manage it?
  • Wear & Tear: Discuss the impact of this often overlooked factor and learn evidence-informed strategies to stay focused and clear-headed
