Mindful Medicine - From Surviving to Thriving: REVAMPing our Pursuit of Well-being as Healthcare Providers

In this session, we will explore topics within the field of positive psychology—the science of well-being and human flourishing—and discuss practical, evidence-based tools for thriving as a clinician. We will delve into research pertaining to resilience and the mind-body connection, as well as the core pillars of well-being including: positive relationships, engagement, vitality, accomplishment, meaning, and positive emotions (REVAMP). Resilience and wellness are not fixed traits; rather, they can be learned, developed, and practiced. Together, we will discuss specific interventions known to increase well-being in service of our own self-care, as well as optimal patient-care.
