In this installment of "Coping During COVID-19," Psych Congress Steering Committee member Saundra Jain, MA, PsyD, LPC, interviews fellow Steering Committee member Julie Carbray, PhD, FPMHNP-BC, PMHCNS-BC, APRN, about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected her academic and clinical workplaces.
"There's been a lot of trying to stay ahead of what we need to do next to make sure that everybody's safe, our students are busy, our patients feel safe," Dr. Carbray said. "This is one trauma where we are peers with our patients and our families. We're all in this together."
In the video, she also discusses how she has seen the outbreak affect her child, adolescent, and family patients, what she has learned from the pandemic, and how she has coped with it personally.
Dr. Carbray is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Nursing, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Administrative Director, Pediatric Mood Disorder Clinic, Pediatric Brain Research and Intervention Center, Department of Psychiatry, Chicago, Illinois.
"Coping During COVID-19" is a new initiative designed to provide content and connection to mental health clinicians during the global pandemic.
