Mindfulness-Based Wellness & Resiliency for Professionals Who Work with Trauma: Harnessing Your Body’s Adaptive Response to Stress through Self-Care

Lynn Williams, Ph.D.

Stress is part of our body’s natural and automatic response to meeting life’s challenges. Professionals that work with trauma have additional occupational stressors such as indirect and direct traumatic exposure and heightened vigilance. Whether we meet these challenges with the depletion that comes from chronic stress or with resiliency can play a large role in our health and happiness every day. The more resilient we are, the quicker we can rebound from setbacks and adversity, whether they be everyday stressors or life-altering ones. With an estimated 70% or more of physician visits attributed to conditions that are related to stress, it is clear that our ability to cultivate resiliency and harness the body and mind’s adaptive response to stress can help to mitigate the negative consequences of chronic disease, as well as, to strengthen the body’s immune system for long-term health and well-being. This experiential workshop will highlight core elements of resiliency, such as physical and emotional fitness. We will learn the science behind mindfulness practices such as yoga and meditation and see how these clinically proven mind-body strategies can reduce work and personal stress and increase physical and emotion resilience and job satisfaction.
