This course is designed to help you cope with challenges you’ve experienced as a healthcare provider (HCP) during the pandemic. We hope the content will familiarize you with new ideas and give you language that helps describe your feelings.

In this module, we are studying acceptance and self-compassion, and learning how they can assist you to move forward.
