Workshop Description

Anxiety and Depression are two of the most widely reported disorders in Canada. This workshop will help nurses who do not work in mental health settings, tell the difference between anxiety and depression; identify the signs, symptoms and gender differences. We'll also cover therapies and treatments that will help inform the nurse to support the patient or client while they are being referred for treatment to the right mental health professional. On the flip side, nurses as caregivers, can be especially vulnerable to giving too much, resulting in the self-effacement of their own needs. Join Sandra Reich M.Ed for this amazingly informative day on anxiety, depression, how to avoid typical caregiver traps and some much needed tips empowering yourself in your practise.
