– FREE RESILIENCE FOR DOCTORS WEBINARS from Oct 2nd Oct 2018 see recording at this link
– ONLINE RESILIENCE PRACTITIONER TRAINING FOR DOCTORS started 22nd Oct, but as all webinars are recorded, it is still possible to join this course.
Doctors tend to be highly resilient; we need to be with the pressures we face.
Yet even if we cope well most of the time, we may not always be as resilient as we’d like. Research identifies doctors as a high-risk group for stress-related harm and also shows the pressures we’re facing are increasing. We can find ourselves overwhelmed by increasing demands or exhausted and dipping in our mood, morale or energy.
The good news is that the last twenty years has seen breakthroughs in our scientific understanding of what helps resilience grow. Research has also shown that resilience training helps protect against the risk of depression, anxiety and stress related harm, while also strengthening our capacity to address challenges. That’s why we’ve set up this website and our online resilience training for doctors.
We’re excited that our Resilience for Doctors online course is bookable now , having started on 22nd Oct 22nd 2018, but as all webinars are recorded, it is easy to catch up.
The course involves
- a series of eight webinars, each an hour long on a Monday at 8pm UK time, the first seven are weekly from Oct 22nd, with a follow up webinar on January 7th 2019 to help consolidate and deepen learning.
- an online resource hosting recordings of webinars (so easy to catch up if you miss any of the live events), plus additional video resources, handouts and a discussion forum. You have long-term access to this online resource (we guarantee at least a year, but it likely to be available much longer).
