COVID-19 has affected everyone—students and educators alike. This webinar will focus on how educators can strengthen their own well-being so that they can be fully prepared to support the well-being of their students. Topics covered will go beyond simple “coping” strategies and instead will examine critical practices that can either undermine or support one’s overall mental health.
