Moving Beyond COVID-19 (4/1)

Marywood University is offering a full-day, in-person continuing education session for educators, counselors, psychologists, social workers, and addictions counselors on “Moving Beyond COVID-19” on Friday, April 1, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at Nazareth Student Center on the University’s campus. The program, presented by nationally renowned psychologist David Palmiter, Ph.D., ABPP, will address how to adjust and collectively move forward from the pandemic-induced anxiety and stress that have led to acute needs for mental health services.

COVID’s long shadow has heightened the pandemic’s socioeconomic inequities, leading to additional psychological, economical, and social harm. This fast-paced, science-based, and practical training will focus on understanding the key concepts of what causes collective trauma, as well as what people can do to practice gratitude, promote resilience, cultivate hope, and restore happiness in their professional and personal missions.

Dr. Palmiter, a full professor of psychology at Marywood University, is a board certified practicing psychologist and an examiner for the American Board of Professional Psychology. He is a past president of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association (PPA), and a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, PPA, and the American Academy of Clinical Psychologists. Additionally, Dr. Palmiter has over three dozen professional publications, has delivered over 200 continuing education workshops across the country, and has over 350 media credits (e.g., The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post). He has won three national awards for his writing, a state award for his media work, and a university award for his work within psychology.

The program fee is $125 and earns six continuing education credit hours. To register, go to marywood.edu/conted/professional-conted and click on the program link.
