Training to Manage covid fatigue and coronanxiety

Explore and understand the many different responses to the current pandemic environment.  Learn ways to manage and control reactions and adapt lifestyles to protect mental and physical health.
 

Our training courses are currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is delivered by experienced subject experts.

Course Context

While neither fatigue nor coronanxiety are diagnosable disorders, the symptoms are becoming more and more prevalent.

The most common signs of COVID Fatigue include: avoiding the news, hypoarousal – a decrease in your body’s normal response to stimuli, hyperarousal – an increase in your body’s response to stimuli, frequent mood swings, irritability when faced with an obstacle caused by COVID-19, and an inability to sleep due to overthinking. It is common to rotate through all these symptoms in a short period. It is also common to feel lonely but to paradoxically also want to be alone for much of the time.

Coronanxiety is the fear of the virus, distorted perspective and intolerance of uncertainty that can result in responses most commonly associated with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Duration: This session is delivered virtually over 2-hours

Format: Virtual, live, interactive session

Delegate numbers: 12

Please contact us for information regarding availability and how we can tailor this training to meet your organisation’s requirements.   Specific course objectives can be discussed with the Trainer, and the course content can be adapted to reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of the delegates.

Who Is It For?

This course is suitable for anyone who is finding their energy levels, motivation and ability to switch off to be affected by the current pandemic.
