Returning to Normal: Strenghening Your Well-being for the Classroom & Clinical Training

Fall 2021 CIPhER programs will only be offered via Zoom.
Co-sponsored by CIPhER – Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education & Research and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy Well-being and Student Wellness Committees
The pandemic has been a profoundly difficult time for faculty, staff, and students, and their mental health.  Many of us feel an extensive fatigue and also an urgency to continue to press ahead as we begin returning to "normal".  During this time, it's especially important to invest in one's personal well-being, acknowledge the many stressors that people face, and feel equipped to recongize excessive stress and anxiety warning signs in ourselves, our colleagues, and our students.  This progam will provide an overview of the challenges of returning to "normal", how to recognize excessive stress and anxiety in ourselves and others, and strategies to maintain and improve resiliency.
Learning Objectives:  At the end of the program, participants will be able to
  1. Discuss concerns related to returning to "normal"
  2. Describe signs and symptoms of excessive stress and anxiety
  3. Outline strategies for processing feelings of anxiety and stress and adapting to change in healthy ways
Target Audience:  This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-graduate trainees, and students.
Registration: For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00.  (UNC affiliates are faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, August 20, at 5 p.m.
