DPA Receives ARPA Grant to Fund Post-Covid Trauma Related Continuing Education Workshops

As we exit the third year of the COVID 19 pandemic, it is clear that the challenge to the population has been overwhelming, and has adversely affected mental health at all ages. We know from past disasters and pandemics that this trauma results in the worsening of anxiety and insomnia. A significant number of people will develop post-traumatic stress symptoms as well as depression. 

DPA will offer a number of continuing education workshops through grant funding received from the American Rescue Plan Act. These workshops will initially focus on post-COVID 19 related trauma. There will be universal communication on the needs of the people during the pandemic and post pandemic. Our initial upcoming CE programs will include the background framework on Covid trauma informed care, universal effective self-help strategies for PTSD, anxiety and stress. Our goal is to develop core content on these important topics that can be delivered to healthcare professionals, students, and members of the public.

Stay tuned for our upcoming workshops and email us with any questions.

Best regards,

Delaware Psychological Association
