The Elephant in the Middle of the Examining Room – Doctor Depression, Anxiety and Suicide
Original Broadcast Date: July 26, 2018 @ 1 PM EST
When you think about going to visit your doctor or health practitioner you most often think about a man or woman who has dedicated their lives to healing others. You may feel relief as you believe the doctor is here to help navigate you through whatever ails you. Rarely do you think beyond that and wonder, “How is my doctor doing today?”
Abraham Varghese teaches us in the “The Tennis Partner” that doctors are more than their persona. David, the talented resident, is much more than his depression, his addiction, his insecurities or his self-effacement.
Likewise, there are well documented accountings of interns, residents and doctors who, for many reasons, turn to drugs and take their own lives. This interactive presentation examines how to take care of the caretaker.
In fact, “more than 920,000 Americans lose their doctors to suicide each year.”

Original Broadcast Date: June 20, 2018 @ 2 PM EST
Happier companies are more creative, productive, and as a result, more successful. Since research has determined that when it comes to job satisfaction and happiness at work, one’s relationship with their boss matters even more than the size of their paycheck, it is vital for leaders to create a culture where employees feel appreciated and part of a larger vision, and for leaders to feel a sense of purpose, satisfaction and happiness themselves as they move their business to the next level.
This webinar will draw on principles of Positive Psychology, Coaching, Psychodrama and Sociometry to provide evidence-based, easily-implementable tools, at both the micro and macro level, to help leaders effect change on an individual and organizational level, and take their organization to the next level.

Turning Points: Incorporating Ritual in Addiction Recovery
Original Broadcast Date: April 18, 2018 @ 3 PM EST
Treating addiction is not merely clinical — there are matters of heart which challenge even the most skilled treatment providers to address. This workshop assists clinicians in shaping patient-centered rituals to effect change and enhance motivation and meaning. Ritual opportunities are identified and various examples are given to illustrate the variety of ways patients, families, groups, and communities mark stages, passages, and recovery milestones. Concerns are identified that relate to patient background and preferences – not every ritual suits every need. Finally, a general outline of ritual form and varied examples of ritual content serve as a foundational “how-to” resource for clinicians and patients who seek to enact movement in their recovery through ritual experience.
