Have you ever thought, “stress management would be easier if other people weren’t involved?” You are not alone. If you were going to create a recipe for high tension in friendships and family, a pandemic along with widespread civil unrest and deeply polarized politics would be the perfect ingredients. The pandemic year (March 2020 to March 2021) has left many relationships strained and some shattered.
During this interactive all-teach, all-learn Lexipol on-demand webinar (Register Now), Mike Taigman, co-author of “Super-Charge Your Stress Management in the Age of COVID-19;” Angela Leath, a mental health fitness training specialist; and Lexipol Editorial Director Greg Friese facilitated a conversation with police officers, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, 911 telecommunicators and corrections officers on the tactics for reconnecting, healing and building new connections with the people you care for most. Join Mike, Angela, Greg and your public safety colleagues to listen and learn.
Discussion topics include:
- Learning how to verbalize the stress you have felt working under the constant worry of contracting COVID.
- Developing the listening skills so you can better communicate with your significant other and your children about your concerns.
- Understanding how to address the fears your families have faced while you work during a pandemic/civil unrest.
