#WEM20 NEW Workshop: Harnessing your inner power: Rapid recovery, resource building and personal resilience
NOTICE: WEM20 has now moved over to the online arena becoming #VirtualWEM20 – a virtual conference to be held on Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th October 2020. Immerse yourself in a WEM online environment where you can be inspired from the comfort of your sofa (or, frankly, from wherever in the world you can get online). So, unfortunately whilst this particular workshop won’t be running, you can find our brand new #VirtualWEM20 programme including inspiring panel sessions and fascinating speakers here.
“There is never enough time to rest/recover/prepare…”
In a constantly moving and ever-changing world there is very little time to truly take care of ourselves. This is even more prevalent as a medic, where you’ll frequently find yourself in challenging and extreme environments having to adapt and react as the situation in front of you unfolds. Leaving little or no time to decompress and escape the pressures and assaults on our mental stability before moving onto our next patient or case.
In our session ‘Harnessing your inner power: Rapid recovery, resource building and personal resilience’ on Day 3 of our World Extreme Medicine Conference, our workshop host Dr Kate Beaven-Marks will be discussing self-hypnosis and how it can become an incredible skill to have in your tool box for when you need to take time out and practice some much needed self-care.
There are huge benefits to be gained for clinicians and emergency workers using self-hypnosis which Kate will be discussing; including releasing and processing trauma, reducing stress, boosting resilience and building coping strategies and resources. As an experienced clinical hypnotist, Kate will be teaching you a specific self-hypnosis method during this session that can be used to help you relax and unwind anywhere and at any time (from noisy helicopter to bumpy transporter). By taking the time to look after yourself, it will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to face your next challenge.
In addition, self-hypnosis is also a remarkable tool for mental rehearsal, planning and preparing for both expected situations and training for effective contingency responses. So, if you are wanting to make more efficient use of your own inner resources to help you cope more effectively in challenging situations then this session is for you! You will also be able to use the skills learnt in this session to develop and support your colleagues by teaching and sharing what you have learnt.
Join Kate’s workshop on Day 3 – Extreme Pre-Hospital Care and Retrieval Medicine of the 2020 World Extreme Medicine Conference.
