Apr 20 Webinar: Stress Resiliency in the Climate of COVID

Join us for a free webinar sponsored by the University of Maryland Baltimore Department of Psychiatry EAP Programs.

Stress Resiliency in the Climate of COVID

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 3:00 pm

This webinar will outline:

  • Characteristics of resilient individuals
  • How to identify your personal resiliency
  • Ways to improve your wellbeing

The pandemic has impacted all of us in many different ways. Rates of psychological distress rose for all adults as the pandemic continued, increasing sixfold for young adults and quadrupling for those ages 30–54, according to a Johns Hopkins University survey. The pandemic has disrupted our lives—the way we socialize and communicate, work, and balance family and leisure life. It has left many with loss and grief, without providing customary rituals for resolving our losses.

Come and join us for a conversation focused on Stress Resiliency.

Learn how to use adverse situations for personal growth and recharge your own Stress Resiliency practices.

Jan 19 Webinar: Managing Compassion Fatigue During COVID-19

Join us for a free webinar sponsored by the University of Maryland Baltimore Department of Psychiatry EAP Programs.

Managing Compassion Fatigue through Self-Care Strategies during COVID-19

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 3:00 pm

Professionals in the healthcare and education fields are at a greater risk for developing burnout and Compassion Fatigue due to excessive practice of compassion-focused skills. Compassion Fatigue can strike the most caring and dedicated nurses, social workers, physicians and personal support workers alike.

It has been shown that, when we are suffering from this, we work more rather than less. What suffers is our health, our relationship with others, our personal lives and eventually our patients.

The best strategy to address Compassion Fatigue is to develop excellent self-care strategies, as well as an early warning system that lets you know that you are moving into the caution zone of Compassion Fatigue.

Presenter: Brian Fellows, MSW, LCSW-C

Ms. Fellows is a social worker at University of Maryland School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry. She has 15 years of experience in early childhood development, trauma and mental health. Ms. Fellows is the Program Director for the Taghi Modarressi Center for Infant Study Secure Starts Clinic where she manages an outpatient mental health clinic and supervises clinical staff and trainees. In addition, Ms. Fellows provides consultation, parent training and reflective supervision to early childhood programs and providers serving the most vulnerable children and families throughout the state of Maryland. Her passion is in promoting good mental health, strengthening relationships and ending generational trauma.

Oct 27 Conversational Webinar: “What’s On Your Mind?”

UMB’S Wellness and EAP Collaborative Event: What’s On Your Mind? A Safe Place to Talk

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 2:00 PM-3:00 PM (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

The pandemic has drastically altered our professional and personal lives. How we work, interact socially, and engage in daily life has transformed. This shift in routine can result in confusion, anxiety and other reactions.

In a Baltimore Sun article, it states, “across Maryland, one in three people say the pandemic has left them feeling anxious and depressed. According to a survey by the CDC, the rate has been as high as 40%.”

Our new normal is to work, play, and learn virtually, which is affecting our families, colleagues and loved ones. As we are “socially distant” our support systems are feeling the impact and face a critical need to support ongoing challenges.

UMB’s Wellness and EAP is committed to providing support and resources to help our employees navigate these uncertain times. Please join us for a “What’s on your Mind” conversation. This platform is completely voluntary and strictly confidential and provides a safe space to uplift and support.
