SMART offers an innovative, modern, uplifting, and highly scalable approach to enhance individual resilience. SMART, developed by Dr. Amit Sood at Mayo Clinic, is offered as a four-module structured program. SMART has been tested and found efficacious in over 30 clinical trials for decreasing symptoms of stress, anxiety, and burnout, and increasing resilience, wellbeing, mindfulness, happiness, and positive health behaviors. The training addresses two aspects of human experience—attention and interpretation. Research shows that our brain’s attention, in its default state, incessantly wanders and instinctively focuses on the negative aspects of the day. This excessive ‘dwell time’ in the default mode correlates with symptoms of anxiety, depression, low engagement, and attention deficit. It also fatigues our brains. SMART offers a way out of this dilemma by engaging the brain’s focused mode—not only to experience more uplifting emotions, but also develop better focus, enhance creativity and productivity, improve engagement, deepen relationships, and find greater purpose in life. During this 90-minute webinar, participants will learn about the four modules of SMART.
