If you are feeling overwhelmed by the amount of traumatic news we process daily, you are not alone. Exposure to multiple, chronic, and/or prolonged traumatic events—whether experienced directly or indirectly—can take a toll on our psychological and emotional health.
The Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program (JHEAP) will be hosting a complimentary webinar, Healing From Collective Trauma, at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, and again at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 28. This facilitated, hourlong session will address the roots of trauma, how to recognize the effects of trauma, and strategies for healing through resilience.
The same session is being offered twice, so please register for the one with the date and time you prefer.
These sessions will be recorded and made available for those who are unable to attend.
Please be reminded that you and your household members have free, confidential access to support, guidance, and referrals for a variety of needs and concerns through the Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program. Reach out confidentially to 888-978-1262. Counselors are available 24/7, ready to assist. You can also log on to CCA@YourService for extensive information and resources.
