Two mindfulness teachers recognize that many healthcare workers are currently overwhelmed and under resourced and wanted to do more than just say "thank you," they wanted to help. They felt that there was another part of the Covid-19 crisis that too few are talking about: health care workers’ mental health.
In early April, Jamie Lynn Tatera and Barbara Moser MD teamed up to create a free six-week live online self-compassion training course targeted specifically to healthcare workers on the front lines.
The two met over a series of phone calls in mid-March to modify their self-compassion curriculm to the needs of people on the medical frontlines of the current crisis.
They knew that self-compassion training can be very useful in reducing fatigue, helping caregivers deal with difficult emotions, and teaching techniques for staying grounded in difficult situations.
A full six hours of live online training, which normally costs hundreds of dollars, is being offered free so it can be of immediate help to this group of people in need. Classes start Sunday April 26.
