QATAR Chamber, in cooperation with Al Ahmadani Medical Center, is set to launch a series of webinars and e-learning tools geared towards Qatar’s private sector.
The first webinar titled ‘Family & Mental Health during COVID-19’ will be held at 10am on Wednesday (July 15).
The webinar will discuss issues such as dealing with children during the period of home quarantine, their anxiety and fear during the health crisis, as well as developing an efficient plan for their daily routine and their return to school after quarantine.
During the seminar, psychologist Serine Al Banna will discuss several issues, including the importance of family support for children during the quarantine period, the psychological problems faced by them during quarantine, and the methods used to deal with the behavioural problems of children.
Banna has more than 12 years’ experience in many of the largest hospitals in the GCC, in the psychological field.
She provides psychological support to those with special needs, children, adolescents and adults. She also specialises in the treatment of psychological disorders through behavioural and cognitive therapy for various disorders such as fear, anxiety and depression, compulsive obsession, fears, self-harm, food disorders and others.
