Preserving Mental Health in Times of Crisis (webinar, FREE for EFA members) SP20


April 24, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Registration is closed for this class



During a crisis, the ordinary stresses of running a freelance business may feel overwhelming. Additional responsibilities can throw an already tight schedule out of whack. Isolation can magnify stressors. Our emotional energy may be more easily sapped.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss strategies for protecting your mental health while freelancing in times of crisis:

  • Understanding and respecting your limitations.
  • Setting and managing realistic goals and self-boundaries.
  • Communicating boundaries to clients and loved ones.
  • Handling a changing workload.
  • Establishing a Plan B in case your emotional health requires it.

There will be time for questions at the end of the session!
