Overview

This half-day program offered in partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care will teach clinical professionals restorative techniques, rooted in mindfulness and meditation, which they can begin employing immediately for the purpose of increasing their capacity to be present with their patients and in all other aspects of their lives. Participants will learn to correctly define and describe mindfulness and meditation. They will then use this understanding to inform the cultivation of practical, actionable tools directed towards better managing stress and anxiety; creating richer dialogues with patients; reducing the risk of burn-out; and achieving better work/life balance. The presenters, both of whom have expertise in instructing clinicians and other professionals in these techniques, will assist participants in identifying resources for further enhancing their knowledge around mindfulness in order to gain sustainable skills to use in daily practice.
