The Resilient Leader: Guiding Your Organization in Times of Crisis and Change

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Presented by Dr. Francis Battisti, PhD

As a leader within your team, a key responsibility is to lead with a resilient, affirmative mindset. Through this program, you will learn ways to better understand and assess individual team members' readiness for change. Drawing from the principles of Resilience theory, participants will also better understand the importance of creating a resilient, life-enhancing culture and the activities that help us do that.

The following topical areas will be covered during this program:

  • Psychological impacts of ongoing crisis and isolation
  • The Six P’s of Resilience
  • Principles of a resilient leader management style
  • A Plan of Action for implementation
This program is a follow-up to the program presented during AIG's 2020 October Conference, “Developing a Resilient Mindset for Health Care Team Members”.

“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving; we get stronger and more resilient.”
~ Dr. Steve Maraboli

Making Informed Choices: How to Assess the Need for and Availability of Mental Health Resources in Your Community

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. | Presented by Dr. Richard Pulice, PhD

COVID-19 has expanded the level of stress and anxiety in health care workers in ways that we could not have imagined, leaving many to try to decide whether they should go it alone or seek support.

This workshop addresses how to determine whether support is advisable and how to find mental health and related services in the community. It begins by examining the barriers to accessing care, including self- and societal stigma, cultural and ethnic biases, availability, and accessibility, as well as some basic concerns related to a person’s ability to pay. We will discuss the types of services available, who provides them, and what the commitments to participation are. The services discussed will include peer support, individual and group counseling, holistic and pastoral approaches, as well as traditional psychiatric care. At the conclusion of the event, we will discuss a strategy for self-evaluation and determining the next steps in care and support.
