The Ongoing Financial Impact of COVID-19: How to Help Your Clients Find Surer Financial Footing

Recent times have been unprecedented in our nation and indeed throughout the globe with the enduring impact of COVID-19. Communities of color and essential, frontline workers have also been disproportionately affected. The financial impact of COVID19, along with the health impact, have been profound. Many professionals in the financial intervention arenas have also been on the front lines in working with individuals, families, and communities coping with financial distress associated with COVID-19. Often clients have also been dealing with simultaneous psychosocial stressors during the pandemic. This workshop/webinar will address the ongoing financial issues related to COVID-19 and will provide useful strategies and ideas when working one-on-one with those facing financial uncertainties and trauma. 

Presenter: Dr. Christine Callahan, PhD, LCSW-C

Dr. Christine Callahan is Research Associate Professor with the Financial Social Work Initiative (FSWI) at the University of Maryland School of Social Work.  She joined the FSWI in July 2012 and conducts research to grow the FSWI as a national leader in financial capability.  Dr. Callahan received her MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1993 and her PhD in social work from the Catholic University of America in 2012.  She worked as a clinician for nearly 20 years at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD, working intensively with patients and families enrolled in clinical trials at this federal research hospital.  Much of her work involved financial distress and financial burden with people who were in medical and psychosocial crisis and dealing with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses.
