DIY Tactics: Managing Distress in Response to Traumatic Situations at Work
Webinar Overview:
Do you have memories of bad shifts from the past? Are there particular patients or situations that are upsetting and distressing to think about? Ones that hit really close to home? Ones that haunt you? These responses to exposure to traumatic events are very common for nurses. There are emotional first-aid DIY tactics that can be used to cope. Distress arising from exposure to traumatic situations at work can be deflected and/or discharged by taking advantage of basic neurologically-based strategies. By using these DIY tactics, nurses will be able to discharge emotional distress when it arises, deflect many disturbing occupational experiences so that they do not continue to disturb and resolve/purge distress that still lingers from past upsetting experiences.

Webinar Objective:
Nurses will learn how to execute a variety of DIY psychological tactics to prevent internalization of occupational trauma and to discharge distress stemming from secondary exposure to traumatic situations.
