Resuming Life in the “New Normal”: Mental Health Considerations/ an online conversation

Resuming Life in the “New Normal”: Mental Health Considerations

Join us for an online conversation via Zoom on Tuesday, June 2nd at 10:30 a.m. We’ll talk about the upheaval and mental health adjustments necessitated by the current crisis, and highlight strengths and vulnerabilities elicited from this experience. Abrupt change and adaptation to new routines, social isolation and cautionary measures create uncertainty as we move into a “new normal.” We’ll talk about concrete approaches to promoting individual and family mental health. This facilitated discussion will be led by Mary Rita Weschler and Kathleen Hagerty, CSJ of The Women’s Table, and is funded by a Harvard Emergency grant. RSVP to: maryrita.weschler@csjboston.org to receive the link for this Zoom conversation. Phone: 617-899-7176.

The Role of Informed Compassion in Promoting Recovery from Substance Use Disorders

Wednesday, May 6, 1-2:30 p.m.
online

Conversations – May 2020 – Free Training
(Live Streaming Webinar Format)
Wednesday, May 6, 2020 (1:00 – 2:30 pm)
The Role of Informed Compassion in Promoting
Recovery from Substance Use Disorders
On-line Registration Link Below
Addiction is now the #1 cause of death among persons under 50. Like other chronic diseases, substance use disorders (SUDs) cause untold human suffering for both patients and their loved ones. The severe and drawn-out nature of SUDs may leave service providers feeling exhausted and emotionally unavailable. Since studies have found the human connection in treatment of SUDs to be vital for sustained recovery, the consequences of compassion fatigue can be tragic and even lethal if not addressed. This training presentation will begin to explore these issues by addressing the following issues:
  • Reviewing the emerging science of compassion in the treatment of SUDs
  • Identifying signs of compassion fatigue
  • Highlighting best practices and creative tools for recognizing and preventing burnout
  • Offering practices for fostering empathic presence and relieving human suffering through informed compassion
  • Distinguishing “enabling” of persons with substance use disorders (SUDs) from informed compassion
  • Exploring the link between care provider empathy and sustained recovery among persons with SUDs
Presenting will be David B. Hathaway, MD. Dr. Hathaway is Associate Psychiatrist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Instructor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
  • Social Work, Nursing, LADC, and EMS continuing education credits being pursued.
  • Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) continuing education credits are approved by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
