The workshop will focus on experiential learning techniques to apply theory and research to expand participants’ cognitive knowledge, practical skills and emotional competence for self-care. It will cover the following topics in a fully immersive experience:

  • Stress and burnout
  • Compassion fatigue and moral distress
  • Dignified and compassionate care
  • Grief and loss in professional caregivers
  • Basics of MCAT
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Expressive arts therapy
  • Meaning making and resilience building

The two-day workshop provides participants with a unique opportunity to obtain a holistic understanding of burnout as well as a true appreciation of self-care via an immersive experience with Mindful-Compassion Art Therapy (MCAT).

Through a series of mini interactive lectures on stress, resilience, dignity and compassion in care, as well as engaging in mindfulness meditation practices, art making, reflective writing and group discussions, participants will learn how to apply mindfulness mediation and expressive arts into their own clinical work and self-care practices. Relevant research findings on the effectiveness of MCAT in promoting wellness and cultivating resilience will also be shared to inform and encourage evidence-based practice and professional training management.

This workshop will benefit health, social and allied care professionals, including clinicians-in-training from all disciplines and all walks of life.

  • All Medical, Social and Allied Care Professionals
  • Clinicians-in-training from all disciplines
  • All walks of life who are faced with caregiver stress and risks of burnout
