Next Program Date: March 8-10, 2019
Sponsored by UCLA Health
This workshop for healthcare professionals provides an opportunity to learn skills in renewal, stress management, and burnout prevention at an advanced level. Reflection, expressive therapies, spirituality, and celebration are integral aspects of this powerful process. These healing skills impact one's individual coping, and are compellingly transferable to one's professional practice, working with patients, family, and staff. The restful setting and small group size provide an ideal environment for rejuvenation and the establishment of trust and community.
Experiential learning and the creation of new patterns, generate an energizing and transformational weekend that reconnects one to the powerful meaning of one's work.
Develop the art of healing for the healthcare professional, demonstrating the components of self-care for the prevention of burnout.
