With the gradual easing of restrictions across the country, everyone has been bracing for the new way of life. Minimum health standards have to be complied with: physical distancing, regular disinfection and decontamination, good hygiene, and wearing of facial masks.
All these to ensure physical health amid the threat of COVID-19. But what about psychosocial health?
Experts on mental and emotional well-being have been giving tips on how to cope with extended periods of isolation, but as society transitions into the new normal, the need to prepare oneself for post-quarantine life has also emerged.
In “Capacitating Oneself for the New Normal,” Dr. Emely Dicolen and Prof. Finaflor Taylan of the Social Work Program of the UP Open University (UPOU) Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) will talk about “Appreciative Resilience in Times of Crisis” and “Gender Perspective and Psychosocial Support and Well-being,” respectively.
This is the upcoming episode of the UPOU’s “Let’s Talk it Over” webinar series and was organized by the Social Work Program of FMDS.
The event will be streamed online on May 27 via UPOU Networks. Go to networks.upou.edu.ph to register for the web streaming.
