Research indicates that organizations that focus on resiliency as a key indicator of success have physically and emotionally healthier teams, foster innovation in practice, have greater retention, and become a highly sought out employer for the next generation of team members. Join us to learn how you can identify, apply, and measure the impact of integrating resiliency for yourself and your team.

When a team is supportive, healthy, and in alignment with our personal values, it is easier to overcome, manage, and cope with the inherent challenges of delivering care. In order to create this environment, we need to practice and apply useful tools that focus on integrating resiliency and positive psychology into our daily perspectives, workflow, and organizational culture. Tools and case studies will be shared. Participants will discuss strategies that keep them going on days when it gets tough and explain how to give (and get) extra support when resiliency is needed. Participants will develop a plan on how to integrate resiliency into their practice and how to best support their team’s health and resiliency.
