MSC - Inner Resiliency Training for Health Care Professionals


Have you ever wondered if there was a skill you could use to help you sustain real compassionate care for patients in the face of competing demands like paperwork and technology, time pressure, patient trauma and fatigue? Burgeoning research is showing that self-compassion skills can be of particular benefit to heath care workers, allowing them to experience greater satisfaction in their caregiving roles and reduced feelings of stress and burnout. The good news is that self-compassion skills are trainable and build your inner resiliency.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Inner Resiliency Training for healthcare professionals is an adapted program tailored toward the use of mindfulness and self-compassion practices in the healthcare setting. This brief training aims to improve wellbeing and decrease burnout in healthcare professionals by training skills to deal with distressing emotional situations as they occur.

As opposed to other self care techniques, MSC practices can be used on the spot while at work with patients and colleagues. Participants of the program will learn tools to utilize throughout the workday to:

  • Care for yourself while caring for others
  • Be able to listen with compassion
  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • Reconnect to the values that give your life and work meaning

The MSC Inner Resiliency Training for healthcare professionals program meets for 6 sessions of 90 minutes at your facility. There is flexibility to customize session length for your facility needs.

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.

A string of such moments can change the course of your life.
