The Minnesota Council on Disability (MCD), as part of the Minnesota Disability Action Partnership, invites you to join us for a webinar.
Coping with COVID-19 and Community Input: A webinar for persons with the trauma of the pandemic
Monday, January 25th, 10 am – 12 noon
Saturday, January 30th, 10 am – 12 noon
(Same sessions on both days)
Limitations and disruptions caused by COVID-19 have made everyday tasks more complicated for everyone, especially for people with disabilities. The added stress of dealing with new challenges in addition to your daily life can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming.
We invite you to join Dr. Karyn Harvey to discuss how to cope with the stress and uncertainty during the pandemic. The session will be a group discussion with time for your questions.
Dr. Harvey has more than 30 years’ experience in the intellectual disabilities field and is an author of multiple articles and books. She currently is the director of program development and training for the Park Avenue Group, LLC. She regularly trains on trauma-informed care and positive identity development.
