More than ever, we all need resilience these days. Studies are showing that for most people, stress is through the roof and burnout is becoming an epidemic of its own.
Conventional strategies for building stress hardiness and blocking burnout have their place, but since things are not going to go “back to normal,” we also need new, forward-looking personal, interpersonal, and organization skills and methods that go beyond coping and help to defeat stress and burnout at their sources.
The structure of the program is designed to be interactive and leads the attendees to do their own work more effectively. They will also be given the opportunity for a follow-up meeting with Dr. Patricia Novick, after the event.
