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. This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. 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. In these sessions, we will discuss mindfulness techniques and apply them with a 20-minute guided meditation. Each one will address a different skill but are also stand alone. Appropriate for beginners or those with experience. These sessions are open to all.
