2020 Fall Webinar

WHEN: Saturday, October 10, 2020, 10am – Noon

DIY Tactics:

Managing Distress in Response to Traumatic Situations at Work

Do you have memories of bad shifts from the past? Are there particular patients or situations that are upsetting and distressing to think about? Ones that hit really close to home? Ones that haunt you?

These responses to exposure to traumatic events are very common for nurses. There are emotional firstaid DIY tactics that can be used to cope. Distress arising from exposure to traumatic situations at work can be deflected and/or discharged by taking advantage of basic neurologically-based strategies.


By using these DIY tactics, nurses will be able to discharge emotional distress when it arises, deflecting many disturbing occupational experiences, and resolve/purge distress that still lingers from past upsetting experiences.

Objective: Nurses will learn how to execute a variety of DIY psychological tactics to prevent internalization of occupational trauma and to discharge distress stemming from secondary exposure to traumatic situations.

Open to all RNs and LPNs who live or work in Pierce, Thurston, Mason, Kitsap, Grays Harbor, Clallam and Jefferson counties. Webinar recording will be available for two weeks for all nurses who register in advance.

Certificate of Attendance provided to all attendees who attend the live webinar or watch the recording and complete an evaluation form. For more information, call PCNA at (253) 572-7337 or email office@piercecountynurses.com.
