Workshop: Compassion-Based Resilience for Healthcare Providers
Details: Healthcare professionals are exposed to others’ suffering on a regular basis through the very nature of their work. Empathic distress can be experienced as a normal consequence of empathic connection with those who are suffering. Compassion, rather than leading to fatigue and burnout, is a way of responding to others’ suffering that can strengthen our fortitude and benevolence. Drawing upon research and various models of compassion, you will discover mindfulness and compassion based practices that promote greater positive affect, connection, and resilience, even in the face of suffering. Through transformational meditative practices you will learn to activate your natural capacity for compassionate presence while strengthening your inner resources, ultimately improving the quality of care for yourself and others.
Date: Thursdays from January 19, 2023 - February 9, 2023
Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM (EST)
Webinar: Improving Emotion Regulation through Physical Health
By Dr. Micaela Gregory, ND
Details: Treating one’s physical health can promote better emotional and behavioral control in clients. DBT targets this through the use of the PLEASE skills, which stands for Treat PhysicaL Illness, Balance Eating, Avoid Mood-Altering Substances, Balance Sleep, Get Exercise. Without a thorough knowledge of these skills clients may not use them to their full potential. In this webinar, Dr. Micaela Gregory ND, will provide a detailed exploration into the components of the DBT PLEASE skills, including ways that we can improve physical health, nutrition, psychoactive substance use, sleep and exercise. You will learn physical health tips that are within your scope of practice to teach your clients, to support meaningful engagement in all five PLEASE skills. You will also learn about when referrals to medical professionals may be beneficial to further support clients’ difficulties with emotion dysregulation and ultimately promote best outcomes in their psychotherapy treatment. This webinar is suitable for both DBT and non-DBT practitioners who wish to effectively integrate physical health changes in their clients to reduce emotional vulnerability, through the lens of the DBT PLEASE skills.
