9:50-11:20 - One and a half hour session
The goal of this 90-minute workshop is to introduce participants to mind-body tools that are being implemented in curricula to reduce the deleterious effects of chronic stress and burnout. Specifically, this session will focus on gaining insight from the physiology of stress to understand why chronic stress makes us ill and how meditation and other mind-body techniques are effective in managing stress and building resilience. Participants will have an opportunity to experience several mind-body medicine skills (such as autogenic training and mindfulness meditation) and thereby gain insight to their impact and utility in education and in life.

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able:
  • To explain the physiology and pathophysiology of stress and the scientific basis for mind-body therapies (such as meditation, breathing and imagery) used to reduce stress and improve well-being 
  • To reflect on the “experiential learning” exercises used to teach faculty and students Mind-Body Medicine skills for self-awareness and resilience. 
  • To discuss the interventional models currently being explored for students, and faculty to build resiliency and prevent, limit or reverse burnout. 
The workshop is open to faculty, students, staff, administrators, who are interested in incorporating mind-body medicine skills in their teaching.
