This webinar will provide hands-on tangible instruction of specific trauma-informed interventions you can use with your clients to help them cope with the COVID 19 pandemic. Relevant research findings from previous pandemics will be reviewed to help inform mental health interventions during the pandemic. Dr. Fatter will demonstrate specific interventions for hyper-arousal symptoms to help manage anxiety and emotional overwhelm and specific interventions for hypo-arousal symptoms to help manage shock, dissociation and emotional shut down. This webinar will be largely experiential so that participants can get a felt sense of how it feels to practice these interventions. Dr. Fatter will teach bilateral tapping (an interventions from EMDR), somatic interventions, and specific breathing techniques to help increase a sense of safety and connect to sense of resilience and relational support to mitigate the impact of social isolation. Dr. Fatter will offer ways to use sensory input from items in one’s home to help clients self-soothe. In addition, Dr. Fatter will describe two cognitive interventions to help client’s cope with rumination and nervous system activation. Mindfulness resources and use of ritual will also be discussed as a means to connect to one’s external environment and help with the regulation of collective grief.
