Preventing Burnout With Mindfulness

A 4 week live interactive online program
This program teaches the neuroscience, psychology and mindfulness skills helpful for managing stress, depression and anxiety.

Wednesdays noon – 1:15 pm, August 4, 11,18, & September 1

Levels of stress, anxiety and depression in the general population have steadily increased in the last 2 decades.

At the same time, physician stress, burnout and suicide remain at very high levels:

  • 30% of medical students and residents describe symptoms of depression
  • 50% of all physicians report at least one symptom of burnout
  • Suicide among physicians is about twice the general population.

Yet, physicians receive little training about tools and strategies for reducing stress in themselves and their patients. While most of the problems causing burnout are institutional, stress impairs our ability to see and implement solutions.

Meanwhile, information about the neuroscience of stress and applications of mindfulness has exploded in the last decade. Studies at major academic institutions are documenting the therapeutic benefits of this training for the treatment of stress, depression and anxiety.

This convenient live webinar includes 4 sessions of meditation training, discussion, and practical skills to reduce stress and enhance happiness.
