About the Course:

The session is an introduction to a course that teaches concepts and skills to help individuals

  • Cope with the stress, pain, and challenges of everyday life
  • Deal with disturbing events with grace and composure
  • Be present and alive in the here and now
  • The one hour session includes information re: mindfulness, guided meditation, and small group interactions. 

Space is limited to 30.

About the longer course: Through guided meditation and brief exercises, participants will learn to develop mindfulness that will help them experience the present moment during everyday activities. Although no specific outcome is promised, participants typically report feeling more focused, more “in-tune” with themselves and others. In addition, research suggests significant beneficial effects in dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, chronic pain, and diabetes.

The goal of the LSUHSC Wellness Committee is to promote a healthy learning and working environment, building resiliency, and personal well-being among faculty, staff, residents, and students in LSUHSC School of Medicine and the Health Sciences Center. The workshop covers the importance of resilience and ways to prevent burnout.

What you’ll learn:

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner should be better able to:

  • Identify strategies to decrease feelings of stress and burnout in 2019
  • Maximize positive technique that will decrease feelings of stress and burnout in medical school, residency and beyond.
  • Implement best practices for decreasing stress and burnout.
