Mindfulness & Inner Resiliency Training for Health Practitioners

November 2, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Have you ever wondered if there was a skill you could use to help you sustain real compassionate care for patients in the face of competing demands like paperwork and technology, time pressure, patient trauma and fatigue?

This 1/2 day workshop designed for health professionals will introduce participants to the research and key tools of the newly adapted 6 week MSC Inner Resiliency for Healthcare Professionals Training. This brief training aims to improve wellbeing and decrease burnout in healthcare professionals by training skills to deal with distressing emotional situations as they occur.  As opposed to other self care techniques, MSC practices can be used on the spot while at work with patients and colleagues.

Burgeoning research is showing that self-compassion skills can be of particular benefit to heath care workers, allowing them to experience greater satisfaction in their caregiving roles and reduced feelings of stress and burnout. The good news is that self-compassion skills are trainable and build your inner resiliency.


A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.

A string of such moments can change the course of your life.
