Building Stress Resilience and Hope for Our New Era

We live in remarkable times. In light of overlapping global stressors such as the pandemic and climate crisis, it takes more effort to help maintain emotional well-being. This is true for mental health care providers, as they both have personal work-life balance challenges as well as risk of work burn out and experiencing vicarious traumas. We will discuss the science and practice for mindfulness-based skills, self-care skills for both relaxation and hormetic stress, as well as the importance of maintaining daily purpose in the face of existential threats.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Define three aspects of burnout and both personal and workplace strategies to prevent burnout
  2. Describe how practicing mindfulness skills can promote stress resilience
  3. Distinguish how we can promote psychological resilience through psychological strategies vs. body-based strategies, such as hormetic stress, and how they each may work
  4. Distinguish between climate distress (eco-anxiety) and clinical depression, and how we can help and treat climate distress
