About the Event
The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills Physician Wellness Group Training Course is an 8-week course designed to provide BC physicians with education and training to support their own mental wellbeing through evidence-based self-management strategies. Secondary benefits include increased awareness of CBT and its clinical applications and training in skills coaching for patients.
Each week consists of a 2-hour session facilitated by a specially trained family physician or psychiatrist. During the weekly workshops, participants will practice incorporating CBT Skills into their own unique situations.
There are currently multiple offerings of this course. You are able to select the cohort that best fits your availability and learning needs. Please note that you are not able to register for more than one cohort.
COHORT C | APR 12 – MAY 31, 9:00 – 11:00 AM WEEKLY (WED.)
Facilitated by Dr. Trish Snozyk: Trish is a Family Physician in Victoria. She believes that what makes people optimally healthy (no matter their diagnoses) comes from their attitudes and their emotional resilience. She absolutely believes that wellness can be learned! Her practice is an eclectic one including technical work as a surgical assistant with the Head and Neck service at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, plus an office practice devoted to the exploration and treatment of metabolic issues such as obesity, diabetes and PCOS. In addition, since 2013 she has been teaching groups of patients, physicians and medical students mindfulness skills and mental health tools they can use to revitalize their emotional fitness and improve their lives.
This course will teach you concepts and strategies that will enhance your capacity to:
- Practice resiliency amidst the complexities of modern work and life.
- Understand and manage unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving – yours and your patients’!
- Choose how you respond to stressors, rather than react.
- Share these pertinent and practical skills with your patients.
- Connect with your peers in an authentic and supportive way.
