Event description
Learn about bias, collective trauma, and strategies for dealing with daily stress during COVID and beyond!

About this Event

In launching the new series Mental Help series, C2ST is pleased to partner LIVE with research experts and practitioners to offer support to specific communities such as the elderly, families, and professionals.

The World Health Organization defines mental wellness as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” Stress impacts us behaviorally, cognitively, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially. We are all feeling the drag of winter, missing life pre-COVID, and grappling with the evolving cultural and political landscapes. But, there are skills we can learn to help deal with these issues and all manner of other stressors!

In the first program, professors Dr. Tara Leytham Powell and Dr. Karen Tabb (University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign School of Social Work) will review the mental health cycle for collective trauma, how different forms of bias (ageism, racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, classism) interact and intersect to influence our lives, and share coping strategies that can be practiced immediately.

Tara Leytham Powell is an Assistant Professor in Social Work at the University of Illinois. Dr. Powell’s research explores the impact of post-disaster behavioral health interventions in disaster-affected communities throughout the U.S. and internationally. She began her career as a clinical social worker in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. As both a hurricane survivor and post-disaster service provider, Dr. Powell recognized the need for behavioral health programs to address the emotional toll of collective traumatic events, such as the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Most recently, she has examined the impact of community based mental health interventions for Syrian Refugees in Jordan and for survivors of hurricanes Harvey and Maria.

Dr. Powell has also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, providing webinars on self-care, supporting distressed children and youth, and grief and bereavement. She provides expertise in stress-management and coping skills, psycho-educational curriculum development, and aiding children, families, and communities after a collective trauma.
