Coping with COVID Part 1
Welcome to our Coping with COVID online masterclass, run by Paula Reid - The Adventure Psychologist.
Coping with COVID has been born out of Adventure Psychology: Going Knowingly into the Unknown™. Adventure Psychology helps individuals and business thrive in changing, challenging and uncertain conditions.

Technology - Zoom
We use Zoom to run the online masterclasses and can host up to 100 people for any duration.
We set up the Zoom, invite attendees and host entirely.
The session runs through PowerPoint slides which we will share using the screen-share facility and a graphic facilitator will capture the output and sharing the graphic recording as much as technically possible.
