The Coronavirus Pandemic and Sustained Peak Loads for First Responders: Promoting Resilience and Care for Burnout
The University of Baltimore's College of Public Affairs will host “The Coronavirus Pandemic and Sustained Peak Loads for First Responders: Promoting Resilience and Care from Burnout” as part of its Henry A. Rosenberg Dialogue Series. The discussion will be held via Zoom, free of charge to the public.
First responders need care, too.
Our first responders must respond to the concurrent economic, social and medical crises confronting our society. Their work ranges from security and law enforcement to medical interventions and social work. It tests the limits of their capacities, and is unrelenting. This panel will address evidence-based strategies to promote first responders’ resilience, and when these are not sufficient, treatment and wellness for their recovery. Each panelist will deliver a 20-minute presentation, followed by a question-and-answer period with the audience.
