Stress First Aid for Pharmacy Educators

Co-Sponsored by the ESOP Well-being & Resiliency Committee
12:00 pm -1:00 p.m., Wednesday, September 14, 2022 in Beard 209 and via Zoom
It’s important for all pharmacy educators to be able to identify signs of stress in their students and themselves along with understanding ways in which to be supportive in times of stress reactions. The Stress First Aid (SFA) model is a self-care and peer support model.  It includes seven actions that help to identify and address early signs of stress reactions in yourself and others in an ongoing way (not just after “critical incidents”). While stress reactions may be relatively common in stressful jobs, SFA can be used by anyone who is in an ongoing stressful situation, particularly when functioning is impaired or there is significant distress involved, such as: no longer feeling like your normal self, loss of control of emotions or behavior, excessive guilt, shame or blame, panic, rage, or depression.
Learning Objectives:  At the end of the program, participants will be able to
  1. Provide compassionate assistance
  2. Prevent the progression of stress reactions
  3. Bridge affected individuals to more formal treatment when that is required
Target Audience:  This program is designed for all faculty, preceptors, staff, trainees, and students.
Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00. (UNC Affiliates are considered to be 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, September 9, at 5 p.m.
