March PCE Offering Highlights:

From Burnout to Resilience:  Science Backed Tools for Thriving in the Face of Stress

With Beth Romanski, Program Director of Professional and Continuing Education, MS, INHC and Laurie Ellington, MA, LPC, PCC, HMCT, RYT, Adjunct Faculty Health and Wellness Coaching and Professional and Continuing Education

Beth:  In your own words, could you explain what resiliency is and why this is so important when adapting to stressors, challenges, and adversities?

Laurie:  Resilience is the capacity to prepare for, adapt in, and recover from stress, challenge or adversity.  The emphasis is more on preparing for and adapting in vs. bouncing back.  The more resilience capacity we have in any given situation, the less we need to bounce back.  Constant expenditures of energy without renewal leads to burnout, health issues, and impaired performance.  If our battery is not charged, we simply do not have the capacity to adapt when we encounter turbulence, flux, or uncertainty.

Beth:  Why is this topic important in integrative health, all workplace settings and our personal lives?

Laurie: Healthcare professionals are at greater risk for burnout syndrome, which is associated with significant impairment in functioning and chronic illness.  Occupational stress is also linked to a decrease in quality of care and a threat to patient safety.  Also, integrative health is relationship-centered care.  As integrative healthcare professionals, we aren’t able to show up in relationship with our clients if we are depleted. This concept also translates to any professional setting as leaders and to our personal lives with our friends and family members which is why this topic is so widely applicable in today’s fast-paced world.
