HAPPY for the FRAZZLED in Healthcare
Date/Time:
June 9, 2020 - 12 to 1 p.m.
Duration:
1 hour
Location:
Webinar
Speakers:
Diane C. Frndak, PhD, MBA and Holly Hampe, DSc, MHA, assistant professors of health services administration leadership at Robert Morris University

Description:

Improving quality and patient safety is hard work. In fact, at times the work can seem like drudgery or like we are pushing the boulder up a steep hill. The personal toll for those who are the “helpers” of healthcare (à la Fred Rogers) can be overwhelming, tiring and depressing. You are a person first -before you are a health professional. Join Diane C. Frndak, PhD, MBA and Holly Hampe, DSc, MHA, assistant professors of health services administration leadership at Robert Morris University, as this session will focus on the science of flourishing as a heart-centered journey creating a real-time community of like-minded people. The facilitators will help participants learn about Positivity-Engagement-Relationships-Meaning-Achievement-Vitality (PERMA-V) and get a booster shot of HAPPY (Healthcare Applied Positive Psychology Yearnings). This session will practice skills in a fun and supportive learning environment. Key positive psychology skills for creating greater happiness and well-being will be introduced, such as: mindfulness, gratitude, strengths, flow, humor, positivity, stress management and resilience. The session will be interactive and engaging while introducing evidence-based science of flourishing exercises. The session will be a breath of fresh air and an act of self-care for the self-identified FRAZZLED. A created HAPPY infographic will be available with some other resources to continue the learning after the session. (Presentation originally planned for P2S2)

1.0 continuing education hours will be awarded for completion of this webinar. Continuing education credits apply to Pennsylvania registered nurses only.
