Whether you are going into work now or still working from home, the COVID-19 pandemic has probably changed the way you think about work. Fear and anxiety about this new disease can be overwhelming, and workplace stress can lead to burnout. How you cope with these emotions and stress can affect your well-being, the well-being of the people you care about, your workplace, and your community. During this pandemic, it is critical that you recognize what stress looks like, take steps to build your resilience, manage job stress, and know where to go if you need help.

Attendance Restrictions: In order to provide an interactive format, this session will be capped at 22 participants. Because of this cap, registrations per agency may be limited depending on the level of interest in each session. Thanks to our trainer's flexibility, we have the capability to schedule additional courses for next month should this session reach capacity. Additionally, we expect that registrants who sign up, show up; meaning that registrants attend the sessions they register for, or provide as much notice as possible if they are unable to participate as planned. Excessive "no-shows" may result in waitlisted registrations for future courses.
Cost: No charge. PennTRAIN has worked with PennDOT to waive registration fees for PennTRAIN courses through July 31, 2020.
Internet Access Required. This course will be presented via Zoom, and attendees must have an internet connection in order to participate. Webcam use is encouraged but not required. A link to join the session will be provided in advance via email.
