Profound changes in healthcare, PPE shortages, changing treatment guidelines, patients dying alone, sick colleagues and family members, long hours at work or home -- no wonder so many healthcare workers feel overwhelmed and exhausted.

How can you manage the intensity -- especially when in the thick of it? How can you care for yourself when you get home?

Mindfulness and compassion practices, adapted from ancient wisdom traditions by contemporary researchers and clinicians, can be surprisingly useful. In this two-part, interactive meeting, you’ll learn how and when to use these practices to care for yourself while caring for others, and have opportunities to share experiences in a supportive atmosphere.

Join Dr. Ronald Siegel for this online program, comprised of two parts, to be held on Thursday, May 21 and Thursday, May 28, 2020 from 1:00-2:30pm EST.  When you register, you will be signed up for both parts.  

There is a small registration fee of $50 for this program. 

Registration is limited to no more than 200 people.
