Resistance, Resiliency, and Recovery Checking-In
Welcome! In this course, we will help you: develop mental health awareness and foster emotional resiliency through providing practical, evidence-based coping strategies amidst emotionally-distressing work.
But first, let's check-in. To effectively help you, we will start with an emotional check-in with you so we can gauge your current level in resistance and resiliency and assess how we could best help you throughout this course.
The Three R's Model For this course, we will be borrowing Kaminsky et. al.'s Resistance, Resiliency, and Recovery model. This model was implemented in various mental health studies with regards to the emotional well-being of healthcare workers.
Let's start with a check-in.
On Resistance Your resistance is founded on your personal and work experience, the way you manage your expectations, your skills with self-regulation, and a mindset of positive reinforcement. It is important to develop a good foundation of resistance to help increase your immunity to stress.
On Resiliency Developing a good foundation on resistance puts you a step closer to building strong emotional resilience. In spite of whatever curves life throws at us, we can be resilient with the help of developing good self-care and coping habits.
Key Insights The concept of "Mental Health" may have only surfaced quite recently. However, it has long-standing importance when it comes to dealing with stress. For us to arrive at a culture of good communal care, it is important that we... fight the stigma against mental health. Mental health stigma is detrimental not only to our loved ones but also to ourselves. It leads us to choose silence over recovery and consequently, worsen our pre-existing stress. By tapping into your innermost thoughts with our recent reflections, you are now on your journey to cultivating good self-awareness.

Stress is part and parcel of your job as a healthcare professional; although this doesn't mean that you should be dismissive about it.
Studies show that these problems were the leading causes for healthcare workers around the world to quit their jobs.

Let's talk about Boundaries in Strategizing with Self-Care
Personal Boundaries are about imposing limits between ourselves and others. These boundaries can either be physical, intellectual, emotional, material, or related to work or time.
Healthy Boundaries Having a healthy relationship with yourself and others at work is about developing flexible boundaries. This is so you can be accommodating to your patients without sacrificing your own well-being. On the other hand, you can have mixed kinds of boundaries with your personal life, romantic relationships, or with your family.
**Self-Care Habits ** & Daily Routines Self-care can be implemented either in your daily routine or during your recreational hours. Sometimes, we need to make time and have personal space to be truly attuned to our emotions. You may do practices in spirituality and relaxing through meditation, journaling, and mindfulness. You may also incorporate the following in your daily routine: Checking-in with your close relationships (i.e. your family, loved ones, friends) Eating a balanced meal **Exercising **or taking short jogs or walks Getting an adequate sleep Making time for your hobbies or personal recreation. Taking walks in nature As for maintaining healthy work boundaries, you may: Determine your priority tasks and **simplify **them Focus on one task at a time Be self-assertive with your boundaries and communicate Aside from this, you may also tap into available e-mental health services for emergencies.
