Coping with COVID Part 1

Interactive Masterclass


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. It’s about enduring performance which is flexible and resilient – a perfect fit for the current situation. Coping with COVID is a flexible series of Masterclasses that will evolve over time.

We deliver sessions which are tailored to organisations or strata or functional teams.



  • How to Survive, Cope & Thrive in difficult times

  • Increased flexibility, resilience and enduring performance

  • Healthy thinking to enable optimum functioning and flourishing

  • How to deal with uncertainty and ambiguity

  • Boost morale, motivation, focus and engagement

  • Improved mental capacity to perform

  • Be more productive


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.


Agenda – 2 hours, 15 mins

A typical session may run as follows:

  3. The mental health of your suppliers/clients

  4. The mental health of your non-work community (i.e. neighbourhood)
