Multi-Day Workshop Options for Healthcare Providers
Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM
From Stressed to Serene
1.5 Day Workshop
Feeling burned out, stressed out, irritable, and disconnected? Join a small group of providers experiencing similar challenges. Learn how the field of positive psychology is informing how we can become happier and more fulfilled healthcare providers. Engage in both didactic and experiential learning activities designed to build evidence based skills for well-being. Let the horses renew your sense of connection and inspire a commitment to a life-long, intentional, well-being practice.
2 Day Workshop
Do you have trouble using assertive energy without getting angry? Do you feel like people walk all over you, or conversely, that others have difficulty trusting you because you have a tendency to bark orders and “lay down the law”? Do you struggle to address conflict effectively? The practice of healthcare often feels like a contact sport. The stakes are high, and emotions can be even higher.
This workshop builds skills in using assertive energy mindfully and with an open heart to set boundaries, provide clear direction, and handle conflict productively.

“This workshop was everything I didn’t know I needed.”
“I would definitely recommend this CME course as it is so important to connect with other healthcare providers who face the same challenges. This is definitely not something that is taught during “normal” medical CME’s but so necessary when dealing with other human beings (coworkers, patients) on a daily basis.”
“It was amazing to connect and be present with other professionals. It allowed me to bring myself back to a place where I am mindful of how and why communication and connection is so important in daily practice.”
