About the webinar

Today’s journalists feel under siege physically, mentally, and emotionally – with good reason. Many JAWS members have said they are concerned about their health and that of loved ones, colleagues, and frontline workers. They are also worried about burnout and their financial well-being amid layoffs, furloughs and consolidations. 

In this highly interactive JAWS webinar, experts will explain the short- and long-term effects of stressors on the mind and body, show us how to incorporate self-care practices into daily routines, and answer your questions in a post-presentation discussion.
