Conflict, political uncertainty and the resulting social upheaval can lead to personal trauma. As a result, you and those you care about will likely experience emotional distress where feelings such as fear, anger and sadness can be overwhelming. You may find that your reactions interfere with your concentration and the normal demands of life. Taking a moment to consider how a recent tragedy has affected you can help you and those around you.
ComPsych created the Coping With Conflict resource guide to assist employees impacted by the Russia-Ukraine armed conflict.
People have a powerful need to understand and predict their environments in order to feel in control. When exposed to potential threats to our well-being, we naturally respond to this uncertainty with anxiety and fear.
ComPsych released a video, Coping During Uncertain Times, to help address ways to effectively cope with uncertainty and examine how to remain positive and functional, despite the risks of living in a changing world.
Included will be practical tips for coping with uncertainty, re-establishing control, and tips for speaking to children about fear.
If you need assistance or help to improve your mental well-being during the Ukraine crisis, call and speak to an EAP counselor. Counselors are available 24 hours a day, including holidays. Spanish assistance is available.
