Neuropsychological Manifestations of Long COVID: Part 3 of the Long COVID Series for Mental Health Professionals
Friday, June 23rd, from 12:00-2:00PM EDT
2 CE Credits
Presented by Dr. Michelle Haddad
As we exit the third year of the COVID 19 pandemic, it is clear that the challenge to the population has been overwhelming, and has adversely affected mental health at all ages. We know from past disasters and pandemics that this trauma results in the worsening of anxiety and insomnia. A significant number of people will develop post-traumatic stress symptoms as well as depression.
DPA is offering a number of continuing education workshops through grant funding received from the American Rescue Plan Act. These workshops will initially focus on post-COVID 19 related trauma. There will be universal communication on the needs of the people during the pandemic and post pandemic. Our initial upcoming CE programs will include the background framework on Covid trauma informed care, universal effective self-help strategies for PTSD, anxiety and stress. Our goal is to develop core content on these important topics that can be delivered to healthcare professionals, students, and members of the public.
Regardless of initial illness severity, many individuals who have otherwise recovered from COVID-19 infection endorse novel, persistent cognitive and psychological symptoms that significantly impact their daily lives. These symptoms may be quite disabling and are estimated by recent studies to be associated with inability to return to work and substantial costs in lost wages. This webinar will review the most common patterns of cognitive and emotional syndromes experienced by patients with post-COVID conditions, as well as recommendations for management.
