About the Webinar Course

This webinar course has been previously recorded.  

Nurses are experts in health and wellness, yet when it comes to coping, many turn to unsafe and insufficient strategies. The American Nurses Association (ANA) estimates that up to 20% of nurses suffer from substance use disorder. While probably the most alarming, abuse of alcohol and/or prescription pills isn't the only form of maladaptive coping. Numbing out with Netflix, suppressing suffering, or taking it out on others are also ineffective and dangerous ways to deal.  It's tempting to escape difficult emotions after a shift by shutting them out or drinking them away, but there are better ways to manage burdens. This webinar course will help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your personal experience of stress and uncover tendencies to engage in unhealthy habits. You'll learn powerful strategies to mindfully respond to internal and external stimuli, enabling yourself to be more fully present and proficient, not only at the bedside but in your capacity to care for the most important person in the room – YOU

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this webinar course, the learner will be able to:
  • Identify powerful techniques to combat chronic toxic stress.
  • Discover simple techniques to reduce work related fatigue.
  • Increase your mental, emotional, and physical energy.
