Research shows that those who care for others, out of vocation or compulsion, often have difficulties in caring for themselves. It’s is easy to get caught up in the day to day operations of clinical practice and forget about taking care of our head and heart.

You will learn a quick and easy technique you can use at work to build resilience and reduce stress.
