Columbia at Home | Coping with Stress and Trauma in Times of Crisis

Join expert practitioners from across Columbia for a virtual program on stress, trauma, and self-care—designed especially for frontline health care workers of all kinds and drawing on the hard-earned wisdom of the University’s military community.

This special collaboration between the CAA, the Health Sciences Schools, the School of Social Work, and the Columbia Military Veterans (MilVets) community will address the impacts of the intense stressors that practitioners have faced during the past 14 months and offer ways to cope. The program will include a panel discussion between alumni and faculty members from across the University.
