This lecture is available online only. 

Join Victor Welzant, PsyD, director of the Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship, and coordinator of psychology for the Trauma Disorders Program at Sheppard Pratt for this Virtual Psychology Workshop titled, "Mental Health Practice during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Applying What We Know about Response to Disasters."

The COVID pandemic has led to an increase in psychological distress for the overall population which may be even greater for persons with pre-existing mental health problems and those seeking mental health care. This presentation will describe the psychological symptoms that may occur in response to a disaster and that patients may experience in response to the COVID pandemic. Strategies for brief interventions in response to a disaster will also be discussed as well as a framework for triaging patients for more extended mental health treatment.
