Pastoral Care for You and Your Colleagues during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Atul Gupta, Consultant in Paediatric Respiratory Medicine, hosted the King’s College Hospital, Professor John Price Symposium 2020 in April 2020. The theme was COVID-19 and included presentations about pastoral care during the current crisis and looking after the mental well-being of yourself and your colleagues, from Fay Costa, Clinical Psychologist and Suja Chandran, Senior Social Worker and Co-Chair UK Psychosocial Professions in CF.

Many thanks to Atul, Fay and Suja for sharing these presentations.

Fay recommends Russ Harris’s (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy trainer and author) video FACE COVID. If you haven’t seen this already it is less than 6 minutes long and has practical strategies for coping.

There is also a document version of FACE COVID:
