Whether your clinical work frequently raises potentially sensitive subjects or rarely does, odds are good you will sometimes encounter a “hot moment”: a sudden eruption of tension, conflict, or big emotion during clinical teaching.

What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning?
Learning mindfulness methods is a great tool for those wanting to connect to a place of inner peace and calm.
