Leadership Check-Up Series: When Your Help is Perceived as Harm: Making Sense of Public Reactions to Public Health Action

Join the National Council’s Behavioral Health Training Institute and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) for the Leadership Check-Up Series: Developing Your Resiliency as a Public Health Professional, a special webinar offering to support public health professionals working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. National behavioral health and resilience experts will provide six sessions of conversation, reflection, and nourishment to help you continue the vital work of responding to COVID-19 while better supporting your families, friends, coworkers, and communities.

This 1-hour webinar, led by Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT, the National Council’s director of trauma-informed services, provides public health officials with an opportunity to understand how the national climate around COVID-19 and health is causing moral injury: the betrayal by people or institutions that should have been trusted to do the right thing. We will explore how leadership is impacted by moral injury and what we can do to support ourselves and our staff during this tumultuous time.
