Coping During COVID-19 Workbook
Over the last year, Dr Keith Gaynor in his role as a clinical psychologist, has been working with many people who are struggling because of the corona virus pandemic. Together with St John of God Hospital, he has put together this free, easy to use self-help workbook to look at some of the most common problems people have discussed and some of the techniques which people have found most effective. Across eight modules the workbook discusses Worry, Loss of Identity, the Pressures of Decision-Making, as well feeling Anxious or Low. Someone might find the whole workbook useful or just pick and choose some aspects that apply to them. The workbook is based on tried and trusted cognitive behavioural therapy techniques and hands-on experience of working in mental health services over the last year.

UCD’s Employee Assistance Service – Take control of your wellbeing
We can all experience difficulties that leave us feeling anxious, overwhelmed and with a reduced sense of wellbeing. At times, all we may need is a little help, information or guidance, or at others – someone to talk to.
The UCD Employee Assistance Service (EAS) is a 24/7 free and confidential support service designed to assist you in dealing more effectively with any personal or work-related problems you might be facing. The service is operated confidentially by Spectrum.Life, the largest provider of employee health and wellness services in Ireland.
The service can be used by a UCD employee, their spouse, civil partner and dependents where the family member can be described as over the age of 18 and residing in the family home.
Don’t forget to check out Culture & Engagement’s Financial Wellbeing section where we have a whole range of financial advice and offers designed to help you take more control of your financial future.
