Nurturing the Caregiver: Discovering the secrets to reducing stress while caring for others

Mary Shackelford will be presenting this webinar for #PSAW2019

The demands on health care workers have never been greater. Many feel stressed-out, overwhelmed and anxious. In fact, many are experiencing deeper levels of stress known as burnout or compassion fatigue. Studies show health care workers who are over stressed or suffering from burnout may also experience impaired attention, memory, and executive function that decrease recall and attention to detail. These effects of stress impact the health care worker, their families and even their patients. The negative impact of stress can increase safety lapses placing clinicians and patients at higher risk for errors.
Research shows that lasting resiliency and healing must come from the inside out. Unfortunately, our culture does not readily teach or demonstrate how to do this. Fortunately, we have access to and understanding of time tested, ancient practices to support self-regulation, self-care, resiliency and healing. These practices have been shown to help regulate and influence the stress response (fight or flight), calm the mind and facilitate more balance and harmony.
The bottom line is that you cannot give what you don’t have. If you feel depleted and empty, there is no way you can come to your life or your patients with focus, attention, patience, high energy and joy.
This personal and professional development program will provide participants with an introduction to self-care as a foundation for their practice. Caring for self is the portal for caring for others. The program is designed to explore the importance of self care, both personally and professionally, and its healing impact on the lives of both caregiver and patient. Participants will be provided easy, every day tools and practices to begin to expand self-care, reduce stress and ultimately find fulfillment in their practice.
Participants will be able to:
• Describe the stress response
• Define compassion fatigue and burnout
• State 2 personal barriers to self care
• Demonstrate a specific stress reducing technique
• Identify at least 3 self
