New Mindfulness Strategies for Employee Well-Being, Resilience & Productivity
This one-day interactive workshop introduces the benefits of mindfulness practice for employee well-being, resilience and productivity. Workplace stress, employee morale, staff well-being and work-life balance needs are common concerns in today’s workplace. In purpose-driven caregiving organizations, the complexities of employee stress are amplified by workload issues, the nature of the work, exposure to various occupational hazards such as burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Mindfulness is a proven skill and practice that can help cultivate resilience, reduce stress, increase feelings of calm and well-being, while supporting optimal focus, decision-making, and productivity. Mindfulness is being used in healthcare, education, leadership, clinical practice and beyond.
Both front-line staff and supervisors within the health, social and emergency services sectors are increasingly exposed to the traumatic experiences of high–needs, high-risk clients. Both long-term and short-term exposure to the traumatic experiences of others, for example, addictions, abuse, violence, human suffering, and more can produce a variety of symptoms in the helper themselves. This type of trauma is referred to as “vicarious”, or “secondary” trauma, and the costs to individual and organization can be significant. Vicarious trauma can lead to a negative transformation of the helper’s own sense of safety and well-being and its symptoms are similar to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
