Regaining a Sense of Safety: Coping with Trauma and Grief - Mental Health Seminar

September 1, 2023

The shooting and extended lockdown on Aug. 28 had a profound impact on the entire UNC-Chapel Hill community. This seminar, led by Dr. Donald Rosenstein, provided perspectives on navigating trauma and grief as well as ideas to support individual and collective coping in the aftermath of this tragedy.

Donald Rosenstein, MD, is professor of psychiatry and medicine at the UNC-Chapel Hill where he is director of the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program and division head of General Adult Psychiatry. Dr. Rosenstein earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Wesleyan University, his medical degree from Northwestern University School of Medicine, and completed his residency training in psychiatry at Yale University. Dr. Rosenstein came to UNC from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where he was clinical director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the chief of the Psychiatry Consultation-Liaison Service.

This Seminar took place on September 7, from 12pm-1:30pm by zoom.

The Mental Health Seminar series is open to students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and staff. The series creates a space for learning, reflecting on, and discussing mental health. This year's seminars focus on research-to-practice, giving the audience both the science behind mental health and strategies they can employ right now. The overall goal is to empower all campus community members to help influence campus mental health and well-being. Please join us if the topic feels right for you.
