TENDING THE FLAME: A Training Workshop in Innovative Self-Care for Strengthening Resiliency and Finding Joy and Meaning in Work
October 20, 2017 - October 22, 2017
- Residency directors or other medical educators in search of well-tested innovative self-care methods for furthering professional and personal resiliency for residents
- Educators spearheading Physician and/or Nurse Well-Being Programs, or Well-Being Committees in hospitals, hospital systems, physician group practices, or other health care organizations
- Residents or Fellows looking for innovative self-care tools for personal or professional resiliency
The fast growing epidemic of compassion fatigue during the professional life cycle of physicians and nurses has stimulated the search for etiology and the development of new approaches of prevention and recovery. Recent research suggests that the capacity to find a personal meaning in your work is highly correlated with professional and personal resiliency and the experience of deep satisfaction in service work. Most residents, fellows, physicians, and nurses live far more meaningful lives than they realize. Experiencing the meaning already present in our daily work does not require us to change what we do but to see familiar things in new ways. Often it requires us to transcend our training and bring the perspective of the heart into the center of our professional work. Meaning is a function of the heart and not the mind. The heart is an organ of vision, a perspective that enables us to experience meaning even in the most routine aspects of our work and reignite our calling.
This 2-½ day workshop will draw on the award winning discovery model methods of RISHI’s national and international educational programs to offer participants the opportunity to discover the power of meaning to transform their experience of their daily work, revitalize their commitment and reinvigorate their service intention. Educators will be trained to offer the program at their sites.
