Roundup: Well-being training opportunities

Publication Date: Apr 01, 2021

Editors' Note: This story ran in our April newsletter, published April 1.


Last month, our Center launched a brand new programming area centered around improving the resiliency and well-being of health professionals and educators.


Information about this training and technical assistance is available on our new Professional Well-Being page. The foundation for this program, as outlined on the web page, is the Adult Resilience Curriculum, a 10-module model rooted in adult positive psychology and organizational well-being theories. ARC is further divided into two tracks:


  1. ARC for Educators
  2. ARC for Health Professionals


See below for additional professional well-being training opportunities and resources.

Well-being is likely a familiar concept to most health care professionals, but misunderstood or underutilized ​when applying it to themselves. Our new podcast, Burnout Busters, helps health care workers make sense of the wealth of well-being research and apply these tried and true practices to their own lives ​and organizations. Well-versed in well-being, Drs. Jordan Thayer and Hannah West help providers identify their values, begin their mindfulness journey, and engage in activities that reinforce the principles of well-being. Join us for ​practical tips​ ​and strategies, guest experts, and more. New episodes drop on Mondays.
