Resilience, Resistance, and the Pizza Party

Recorded July 9, 2024

Webinar Description

Have you ever been to a training that was going to TEACH you how to become resilient? If you've worked in any facet of healthcare, you ALREADY are. In this presentation we're going to cover the important difference between the ideas of resistance (psychological readiness) and resilience (the process of bouncing back from adversity). We'll also discuss ways in which members of leadership can foster emotional support and wellness of their teams, without the same old soggy pizza party. Join us as we put a new spin on mental health education for providers and leadership alike.
