“Healing Out Loud” is all about demonstrating healthy coping strategies and modeling self-care in a turbulent world when others may feel lost or alone. In addition to regular life stresses and challenges, the COVID pandemic and its required changes to our daily lives have added additional challenges to our clinicians and learners. Our clinics have been turned upside down and we are now struggling to find our “new normal”. This presentation will explore how our needs have changed as physical therapists, clinical instructors, and SCCEs while noting the evolving needs of our physical therapy trainees.
