2 90-min training sessions, Parts A and B
The goal of our first-level training is to improve our own resilience as healthcare providers, as well as learn some simple skills we can use in coaching our patients and their families. Contact us for information on scheduling and pricing for your clinic or practice.
As a prelude, we start with a quick overview of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), examining how trauma—both our own ACEs/trauma and vicarious trauma from our patients and families —can get in our way. We look at our Protective Patterns—our automatic reactions to situations—which can help or harm us, depending on the context. We also discuss our Cultural Patterns, which are passed on through the generations, and inform how we look at the world.
The main focus of the training is how can we tap into the resilient nature of ourselves and others. Through interactive experiences and group discussion, we explore a set of practical Resilience Skills for Centering, Connecting, and Collaborating. Through practicing and modeling these skills, we are then able to provide anticipatory guidance to patients and families in using them.
