Auburn, Alabama —
Stress is a part of everyday life for almost everyone and when someone suffers from stress – including health professionals – it can be difficult to understand how to help.
Emotional CPR, set for Tuesday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m., will train health care professionals and students majoring in health care fields to identify signs of stress, to help others cope with stress and teach appropriate ways to bring up difficult topics, said Nicole German, graduate counseling intern for Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine and a Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology, who will be giving the lecture.
Emotional CPR training will take place at 6 p.m. in Overton Educational Wing on the Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine campus. The event is free but advance registration is required at www.vetmed.auburn.edu/ce.
It is offered to veterinary medicine and medical students, staff and faculty at Auburn and Tuskegee universities. Community residents in the health care field can also attend.
“The goal is to empower the faculty and staff to have the tools to help facilitate an environment of wellness,” German said.
Resources for those interested in more information about community health will also be provided.
