Resilience Bootcamps

9 total hours of training, starting Sunday, April 19
for Health Care Providers, their teams, and First Responders

Burnout, Demoralization, Secondary Trauma, and Moral Distress

This course is First Aid in the form of Resilience Training for all of us who are directly involved in health care – and to any who are working hard behind the scenes caring for us in our missions. We are all in this together. Our faculty’s original 2.5-day Resilience Bootcamp has been pared down to SIX tightly-focused 90-minute modules, offered by Zoom teleconference over six weeks during evening/weekend hours so that health care providers and their teams can stop, breathe, and replenish, even for a few minutes.

Virtue Medicine’s Bootcamps help us understand together what is critical to building RESILIENCE, for survival and healing. Putting this into practice for ourselves, we can efficiently help our teams and patients do the same in the way we talk, listen, and map out meaningful paths in each moment, even in suffering.

We want to connect with what you’re experiencing in your work and bring help directly to you. In addition to live-streaming the course content, we will be offering Q&A panel discussion at the end of each module to group questions. Our faculty are interdisciplinary experts, each with over 20 years in field work and scholarship: Janeta Tansey, MD, PhD (Iowa – Bioethics, Psychiatry, Executive Coaching), Cheryl Erwin, JD, PhD (Texas – Bioethics, Health Law Scholar, Executive Coaching), Elizabeth Parks, MA, PhD (Colorado – Communication Ethics, Public Health). The Q&A section is facilitated by JoAnna Romero Cartaya, PhD (Iowa – Psychology, Ethics)

  • Some of the hard questions we are holding in health care today:.

    What does courage look like in the battlefield ethics of medical crisis? Are the military-war metaphors the right ones for this time, or do they miss something important?

    Is there any possibility of peace (let alone sleep) when no matter how hard I try, my limitations result in others’ possible or actual suffering? What do I do when I can’t help but imagine the harms coming from tasks undone?

    How do I triage emotional labor when the whole world needs care? Is there any cure to compassion fatigue?

    How do I cope with this terrible grief? In all of this direct and secondary trauma, how can I think about and nurture a semblance of Post-Traumatic Growth?  

    How do I cope with all the righteous anger I am feeling about everything that has gone wrong? Who is my “neighbor” when my many communities are all at risk simultaneously?

    How do I map a path through this sense of overwhelming futility? What do I do when being smart and well-educated doesn’t actually bring me the guidance I really need for what to do NOW?
