Effectively Supporting the Well-Being of Healthcare Professionals
Healthcare organizations are increasingly seeking psychologists who will—as part of their roles and responsibilities—assist in supporting the well-being of physicians and other healthcare professionals. Through case examples, Dr. Beacham will provide key lessons learned in three approaches to addressing burnout, well-being, and resilience within and in collaboration with healthcare systems across a continuum: 1) Consultation-Liaison Intervention Model, 2) Manualized Group Intervention Program, and 3) Systemic Structural Approaches. Dr. Beacham will highlight how psychologists can effectively bring their skill set to this work while navigating the intersection of opportunity and challenge.
