What are the resources we can bring with us into stressful or triggering situations, so that we can continue to be our best selves as people and professionals?

David Richo is a psychotherapist, teacher, and author of over 20 books including “Triggers: How We Can Stop Reacting and Start Healing.” Today he joins Jenny along with Rebecca Minehart, an anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Director of CMS’s Anesthesia Courses, to talk about how we can help equip providers to deal with the trauma they have been dealt during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ll learn how to see something that causes an unbalanced emotional reaction, a trigger, can be used as a sort of trail head into exploring things in our lives that haven’t been fully resolved. We’ll also learn how can clinicians get past their anger and fear when the actions of others directly endanger them, and how the support of a team can help us to safely release our emotions at the appropriate time.
