Engaging Healthcare Work Challenges with Awareness, Empathy and Skill
October 23, 2019 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Organized By: The Compassionate Care Initiative
A educational, experientially-based workshop for anyone working in healthcare, as well as nursing and medical students. Facilitated by Donald Rothberg, Ph.D.
How can clinicians connect self-care with skill in addressing challenges that arise in healthcare work relationships? In this experiential workshop, we will explore using three core capacities that can be applied at work: (1) strengthening “inner” capacities for being skillful with difficult emotions, the judgmental mind, and strong views; (2) developing skillful and empathic speech and communication, including in difficult situations; and (3) approaching conflicts with more understanding, skill, and steadiness, as opportunities for learning and transformation.
LUNCH IS INCLUDED AND CONTACT HOURS ARE AVAILABLE FOR NURSES! ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED BY OCTOBER 16TH FOR THIS FREE EVENT.
Workshop activities build on one another throughout the day. So, for the benefit of your own and the group’s learning, CCI and our guest facilitator request participants attend the entire event.
