Helping Empower Patients with Long COVID to Move from Surviving to Thriving

Jul 21, 2023  01:00 PM  EST | Past Webinars |

Long COVID is a chronic illness that negatively impacts millions of people and yet individuals with this condition can learn to thrive and not merely survive. In this webinar, neuropsychologist, researcher, and best-selling author, Dr. Jim Jackson outlines a variety of strategies - both medical and practical - that can be used to empower Long COVID survivors and help them embrace the idea that they can live rich and meaningful lives even if their symptoms never completely go away.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will develop an understanding of the cognitive and mental health challenges that occur in individuals with Long COVID.
  • Participants be able to articulate the biological contributions to Long COVID and the ways that long Covid drives the development of cognitive and mental health challenges.
  • Participants will be able to describe key strategies of choice in the treatment of brain injuries, depression, and PTSD in patients with Long COVID that lead to empowerment, better functioning, and improved outcomes.

Dr. Jackson’s new book, Clearing the Fog: From Surviving to Thriving with Long COVID - A Practical Guide, is now available for purchase and further explores how to support Long COVID patients.
