Today’s cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a treasure-trove of scientifically‐tested tools to help physicians increase their resiliency and reduce their risk of burnout. Physician wellness is important for countless reasons, including that it significantly determines the quality of care delivered (CMPA, 2018). Simply put, the burned-out doctor is probably a crappy doctor.
Sadly, the burned-out are also at risk for Premature Clinician Aging Disorder (PCAD). PCAD isn’t just the result of a heavy caseload and long hours. PCAD is also predicted by one’s psychology.
Happily, state‐of‐the‐art CBT includes a collection of powerful techniques for silencing self‐criticism, decreasing rumination, letting go of the past, increasing self-compassion, improving decision‐making, optimizing time management, boosting mindfulness, and making a marriage spark joy.
PCAD is not inevitable: you don’t need to age faster than the required rate (unless you want to).
Please join CBT Canada faculty for the fast-paced & practical SuperDoc workshop. You’ll emerge equipped with versatile CBT tools to boost the functioning and improve the mental health of your patients, your family, your friends—and the ongoing project called “you”.
Note: This is a serious workshop that even saw-wielding orthopods can relate to, with nary a mention of yoni steaming or herbal colonics, and there are absolutely no Zoom group hugs.
