What we Need Today is a Sense of Courage
Sense of Perspective
One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own inner strength. However, we can’t share what we don’t have. By discussing psychological approaches to maintaining a healthy perspective in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others) and author of Bounce: Living the Resilient Life; Perspective: The Calm within the Storm; Overcoming Secondary Stress in Medical and Nursing Practice; and The Resilient Clinician (all from Oxford University Press) offers insights into how we can maintain inner balance and, in turn, extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process. Topics will include: resilience, maintaining a healthy sense of perspective, recognizing and addressing the classic dangers to personal and professional well-being, developing a realistic and powerful self-care program, knowing the “voices” we need in our circle of friends to maintain balance and courage in life, facing inner darkness, and improving mindfulness. Practical, illustrative, lively, this rich presentation, which can be tailored to the general public as well as professional and corporate audiences, will provide essential information on maintaining perspective, resilience and personal wellbeing.
