Please join us as we discuss how groups can successfully navigate collective trauma with the COVID-19 pandemic as a model. It is how we cultivate resilience as a group, foster communication and individually and collectively recover and grow that determines whether an initial trauma will cause additional fall out. We propose to review some best practices for how to collectively navigate “pandexit” or recovery from any traumatic or stressful situation that affects a large group of people. In this session, we will discuss individual and group tools for resilience, go over acute and chronic reactions to trauma and discuss how leadership can steer groups of people into recovery.
