Advanced Provider Wellness: Resiliency For Dentists And Allied Health Professionals
September 13, 2019 - September 15, 2019
The Advanced Provider Wellness (APW) course will provide training in evidenced-based, high-yield mind/body techniques that have been documented to rapidly reduce stress and burnout and build resiliency and wellness. The APW curriculum addresses the 4 recognized drivers of health provider burnout/resilience. Mind/body techniques include breath-based practices (SKY Breathing Meditation, Sudarshan Kriya) and an effortless meditation—Effective Deep Meditation (EDM)—technique that calm and renew the hyper-stimulated nervous system which dentists and other health providers often experience. Additional training will provide life skills in use of yoga based breathing techniques, mindfulness principles to stress management, ways to relieve daily fatigue and a yoga methodology for sleep support. Narrative medicine with the power of story telling is included. Peer support and connection will be delivered through interactive processes and group discussion. Participants receive an understanding of the psycho-biology behind mind/body practices and the research on the causes and risks of burnout. At course completion participants will be proficient in a setting of mind/body technologies to practice on their own.
