More about this Webinar
As a clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience working in academics and the healthcare industry, having survived cancer three times, I have personally endured professional stress for most of my professional life. I would like to hear from you but also share what I have learned about scientific-based stress reduction techniques which help us build resilience and health. Recovering our original desire to be of service will not only bring joy but also help us optimize our capacity to do what is best for our patients or clients. Considered under the umbrella of mindfulness and compassion training techniques, these are NOT one-size-fits-all solutions and include a bigger perspective than those under the self-help category.
I understand professional stress as a "moral injury": a transgression of values and ethical principles including social, cultural and spiritual aspects of life. Taking a less individualistic and more collectivistic approach in which stress is the consequence of organizational and systemic aspects that are not only the responsibility of an individual allows us to minimize the load of guilt for not meeting certain social standards. Furthermore, it is possible to develop this way more flexibility and an opportunity arises to grow and also become active agents of change in our system.
I hope that this Webinar helps you in your decision to enjoy life and bring joy to others.
