Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Psychology Volume 02, Issue 01: Treating the Wounded Healer.

The goals of this program are to improve treatment of medical professionals in distress and to minimize clinician distress and burn-out by fostering a healthier professional culture. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Describe common causes of stress and distress faced by individuals working in the health care professions.
2. Identify a patient’s attachment style and how his or her attachments affect levels of distress.
3. Teach professionals how to apply mentalizing and mindfulness to reduce their own stress, as well as the stress of others.
4. Establish a health care culture that removes shame and stigma associated with seeking mental health care.
5. Promote “authorship” as a means of helping patients play a role in their own recovery.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
