2017 Talks and Programs

Self-Preservation in Practice is a new e-class for healthcare providers.

You as a provider have to manage a unique kind of emotion as you train and work in your profession.

This emotion toggles you between the need to be objective and the need to be human, which can leave you feeling conflicted, depleted and stressed.

This summer I’ll offer a one hour e-class that addresses this specific emotion. It will:
1. Examine the unique challenge of people in professions
2. See connections to specific provider stress
3. Guide you in answering questions about psychological barriers that can become positive tools

I’m excited to offer this class to you. It’s a variation of what I’ve been teaching in the legal field and we’ve had positive results.

Together I believe we can create a new tool to help you manage this specific provider emotion. It’s a win for you and your patients!

Please check back in June or email me and I’ll remind you when it goes up.

Thank you,
