Overview:

 

Health care workers — including but not limited to physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, behavioral health providers, and administrators — experience exceptional levels of burnout and compassion fatigue as the result of packed schedules, emotional demand, and moral injury — and these stressors have only been amplified since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this webinar, speakers will describe how stress affects us psychologically and biologically. Speakers will share research-backed strategies for overcoming barriers to well-being. These strategies are rooted in the Adult Resilience Curriculum, or ARC, a 10-module model for implementing well-being at both the individual and organizational level. The model is rooted in adult positive psychology and organizational well-being theories and has been adapted to apply across medical and educational settings.

 

Learning Objectives:



  • Discuss the psychological and biological effects of stress related to well-being.
  • Explain how Adult Resilience Curriculum (ARC) for Health Professionals can be implemented at the individual and institutional levels to help overcome barriers to well-being.
  • Articulate how the Mid-America Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) resources can be utilized to assist with an individual’s professional well-being.
