    in the face of tragedy, trauma, adversity, hardship, and ongoing significant life stressors. American Psychological Association
  23. Resiliency is a Critical Ingredient to Recovery and Healing Resilience:

    Capacity for successful adaptation despite challenging or threatening circumstances McLewin & Muller 2006; Waller 2001; Bell 2006 “I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation." -Dr. Peter Levine

  34. Self-care is an ethical responsibility • The World Health Organization

    has finally declared burnout a real syndrome with medical consequences (June 2019). • A meta-analysis of 82 studies including 210,669 healthcare providers found that ”greater burnout among healthcare providers was associated with poorer-quality healthcare and reduced safety for patients.”1 • Burned-out physicians have been linked to more medical errors and higher malpractice risks, and to suboptimal care. 2 • A study of 358 Dutch police officers found that burnout is “positively related to attitudes towards use of violence and the use of violence during the officers’ duty.3 1 The Relationship Between Professional Burnout and Quality and Safety in Healthcare: A Meta-Analysis Michelle P. Salyers, 2017 2 Shanafelt TD, Balch CM, Bechamps G, et al. Burnout and medical errors among American surgeons. Ann Surg. 2010 3 Kop, et al. (1999) Burnout, job stress and violent behaviour among Dutch police officers, Work & Stress “When a professional is burned out, everyone suffers.”
  35. The expectation that we can be immersed in suffering and

    loss daily and not be touched by it is as unrealistic as expecting to be able to walk through water without getting wet. (Rachel Naomi Remen, 2006)

    support (personal and professional) • Feeling that one has a personal calling to the field • Personality traits: • Optimism, faith, flexibility, sense of meaning, self-efficacy, impulse control, empathy, spirituality, effective problem solving • Regular use of deliberate healthy coping strategies (aka self-care) Collins-Camargo, 2012

Mental Effort: The beauty of self-care is that it doesn’t take a lot of mental energy! 5. Social Deviance: Enlist a friend. 6. Non-Routine: Find a way to make it part of your regular routine, instead of an add-on that can be skipped
