Why this curriculum?
The intention behind this program:
Healthcare workers are increasingly experiencing burn out and leaving their careers before retirement. Additionally, a compounding mental health crisis among veterinarians, physicians, dentists, and first responders continues to grow.
Medical fields generally attract diligent, “neurotic”, and “stoic” personalities that put their own needs last. Increasing stressors on healthcare professionals include the politicization of science and health issues, changes within practice styles, and accumulating moral injuries.Our organization serves the mission of planetary health by caring for healers at the level of the individual and the community. By educating and resourcing Healers to care for themselves, we believe those individuals are then are better able to care for others, safely and with resiliency.
This curriculum addresses the underlying risk factors that threaten the mental and emotional health of Healers.
