Webinar: Clinician Self-Care in Times of Crisis



McLean’s Dr. Blaise Aguirre Shares Coping Tips for Health Care Workers During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We are living in challenging times and the compassionate team at McLean Hospital recognizes how stressful the COVID-19 pandemic is for everyone, particularly clinicians. Just like you, every one of us has a common goal of ensuring that the people in our communities are supported when they need us the most.

While so many of us are working around the clock to support others, now is also the time that we—the clinical community—need to take care of our own mental health and that of our colleagues. We are all working hard to balance the stress of an uncertain future regarding our families and patients and we need to acknowledge that there is no shame in admitting that we are stressed and tired and in need of support.

On Thursday, April 2, Dr. Blaise Aguirre discussed a few proven methods used to deal with stress during times like these.

About the Webinar

The agitated, irritable, anxious mind cannot think effectively.

Mental health professionals know this better than most. We work with patients who struggle immensely with this problem. We the professionals are just as vulnerable to the problem of dysregulation and yet don’t always model great regulation.

We can use the very skills we teach our patients.

Dr. Blaise Aguirre offered strategies from dialectical behavior therapy to help mental health professionals and health care workers cope with the challenges they are facing during COVID-19.

This is the first in our series of COVID-19 webinars to help support our community.
