We Are Resilient: Strengthening Resilience in Ourselves & Our Patients
December 16, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Healthcare providers are experiencing high levels of stress from the COVID surge. Add vicarious trauma from screening for ACEs and it can feel overwhelming. We Are Resilient™ designed to improve our own resilience as healthcare providers. It also helps us offer anticipatory guidance about resilience for coaching patients and their families. The introductory training puts resilience in the context of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), the Cultural Patterns we view the world through, and our Protective Patterns—our automatic reactions that can help or harm us. Through interactive experiences and participatory dialog, we explore practical Resilience Skills for Centering, Connecting, and Collaborating and how to guide others toward their own resilience. Speakers will provide practical tips on how We Are Resilient can be used in healthcare practices.
