HWA1 - A Path to Healing (NACHC Pillar #3)

Nov 17, 2021 11:30am ‐ Nov 17, 2021 12:30pm


Covid 19 has relentlessly impacted health center front line staff, their families and communities. Meanwhile, other traumas have been experienced as well—fires, hurricanes, financial stress and personal difficulties. It is difficult to know how to extract ourselves from the immersion of stress and to safeguard a way to healing. Health center staff need renewal and persistent strength to orient their communities and themselves toward healing. Through hearing voices of patients and staff, learning about the effects of social outrage and stress, and considering ways our bodies and minds may, create new mechanisms for affirming healing, staff and centers will be offered simple practical methods to acknowledge the moral injury of this time while making a way forward toward resolution.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will understand the core themes patients and staff are sharing about COVID-19.
  • Participants will understand the effects of chronic outrage on our bodies and social settings.
  • Participants will experience tools to assist personal and collective healing from the trauma of the pandemic.
