    Social Reintegration Anxiety in Residents Belinda Vierthaler 1.0 Resident Care CEs


    Through the pandemic, we have been told to social distance.  Because of the social distancing and isolation, people, including residents and team members, have become accustomed to social isolation.  Now that COVID numbers are going down and the vaccine has brought the hope of returning to some normalcy, we are finding that it is more difficult than we anticipated.  Re-integration anxiety is the fear of coming back together after being segregated. From a mental health standpoint, being expected to join group activities and dining is anxiety provoking.  Add to it the idea that you don’t know who is vaccinated and who is not, and you have a recipe for social anxiety disorders.  This presentation will discuss what anxiety is and ways to overcome it.



    Learning Objectives: 

    • Define anxiety and how it impacts us.
    • Identify non-pharmacological ways to treat anxiety.
    • Demonstrate ways to overcome re-integration anxiety.
