Workshops

Mindful Practice: Enhancing Quality of Care, Quality of Caring, and Resilience

Chapin Mill Retreat Center, October 21-24, 2020

MINDFUL PRACTICE GOES ONLINE 

Using state-of-the-art online technology, we have created a live online workshop that will be dynamic, interactive and will promote inquiry and self-awareness, and professional connections in the same way as our in-person workshops. Click here to find out more and register for the workshop.

Course Overview

A retreat-like workshop designed to improve the quality of care that clinicians provide while improving their own resilience and well-being. It offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for self-awareness in stressful and demanding situations.

Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NP's, PA's) and others involved in medical practice and education. No prior experience is required, however, experience with meditation or other contemplative practices is desirable.

Session themes include flourishing and finding meaning in medicine, noticing and attention, self-awareness and mindful communication, promoting deep listening and compassion, clinician grief and loss, managing conflict, teamwork & leadership, gratitude, attending to self-care, resilience and well-being, and promoting mindfulness in participants' own work settings.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
-  Increase clinician self –awareness and self-monitoring during clinical work and teaching
-  Increase clinicians’ ability to attend to patient’s needs, reduce and respond to errors, practice with greater effectiveness and compassion, and attend to their own well-being
-  Incorporate mindful practice into clinical and educational activities at their home institutions
