Synopsis:
Calamities, catastrophes and conflict can happen to us at any time and are typically out of our control. What we can control, however, is how we respond to them. The COVID-19 pandemic hit the world like a ton of bricks. Dental professionals are facing new challenges as we try to adapt to the reality that pandemics and conflicts will change the way we practice and interact. Change is always difficult and this particular change involves a significant amount of fear about the health and safety of our patients, our team, our families and ourselves. We also worry about the financial repercussions.

Failure to address emotional turmoil is a dangerous business and can lead to burnout, depression, cardiovascular disease and many other physical ailments. This is new territory for us but there is much to learn from those who have struggled in the past. This CE course focuses on proven methods to overcome the anxiety and grief associated with the trauma caused by the current pandemic, tragedies in our life, depression, and social conflict.


Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
  • Recognize the physical effects of emotional turmoil and the neuroscience behind it.
  • Understand how grief and depression affect the dental professional and the numerous circumstances (including global pandemics) that constitute a major loss.
  • Examine the unique nature of a professional life in dentistry and the stigma/secrecy we encounter when it comes to grief and depression.
  • Update your knowledge of lessons we learned and changes we made during the initial AIDS crisis in the late 1980’s.
  • Expand your resilience potential and know that no matter what happens in life, peace, joy and happiness are possible.
