Webinar 1: When Your Help is Perceived as Harm: Making Sense of Public Reactions to Public Health Action
Speaker: Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT – Director, Trauma-Informed Services, National Council for Behavioral Health
This one-hour webinar provides public health officials with an opportunity to understand how the national climate around COVID-19 and health is causing moral injury: the betrayal by people or institutions that should have been trusted to do the right thing. We will explore how leadership is impacted by moral injury and what we can do to support ourselves and our staff during this tumultuous time.
