Summary

5-day, retreat-like workshop designed to enable clinician and medical educators deepen their skills in mindful practice and their ability to teach and develop programs in mindful practice at their home institutions. Mindful practice promotes effective, efficient and compassionate care while also improving clinicians’ own resilience and well-being by building clinicians’ attentiveness, situational awareness, self-awareness, teamwork, and self-monitoring in stressful and demanding clinical situations. The workshop helps participants define and realize their learning goals in an experiential learning environment.

Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NPs, PAs) and others involved in medical practice and education, the program combines didactic presentations and experiential exercises using narratives, appreciative inquiry, and contemplative practices such as mindfulness meditation. Session themes include attention, suffering, teamwork, difficult conversations with patients/families, uncertainty in medicine, medical education, grief and loss, resilience and compassion.

The workshop will offer participants hands-on experience in teaching and facilitation with attention to promoting Mindful Practice activities at participants’ home institutions. Participants should generally have prior experience with meditation, yoga or other self-awareness practices. Prior attendance at a Mindful Practice® workshop and teaching experience are desirable.
