Increasingly, health-care institutions are coming under pressure to do more with less, to provide quality care with less resources and to improve the experience of patients and their families. As a result, many health-care workers find themselves grappling with increased levels of stress, burnout, compassion/empathy fatigue and conflict within their teams and colleagues.

Overall Goals:

• promote resilience, health and well-being within the self and the health care environment
• engage self-compassion and self-kindness verses the inner critic
• develop self and other observational tools thus improving one's relationship with self and others
• learn to manage suffering and difficult emotions
• learn to develop compassion and set boundaries without burnout, apathy, numbness and exhaustion
• learn self-care strategies to prevent burnout
• develop the capacity for an open heart
• develop mindfulness verses over-identification
