Thrive From Within: It Starts With you!
Stress-Reduction and Improved Self-Compassion through Reflective Practice
What is Thrive From Within all about?
This hybrid program teaches the practices of self-care, self-compassion, and mindfulness-based stress reduction through the process of reflective journaling and interactive activities. The program consists of self-directed, cloud-based micro-learnings and includes 3 virtual/recorded learning labs to enhance the learning of the participants. Healthcare team members may participate in cohorts according to their specialty to promote cohesiveness and teamwork within their community.
Why should frontline caregivers take the course?
Perceived stress and self-compassion are assessed using statistically reliable and valid instruments prior to beginning the program. After the program, the assessments are repeated using the same tools to show the impact of the program on your team. This program introduces the benefits of reflective journaling to improve stress reduction, self-compassion, and personal/professional growth. Each participant receives a journal designed for healthcare workers which is organized in the SBAR format: Shifts. This program is an investment in frontline caregivers and reflects the organization’s appreciation for their remarkable efforts during persistent change and increasingly complex healthcare environments.
Demo of the Virtual, Interactive Platform:
I really appreciated the self-awareness portion. I didn’t realize how valuable a self-awareness evaluation would be in identifying my strengths, weakness and needs.
I knew self-care was important but didn’t truly appreciate the impact it could have on my everyday life.
I was surprised by my lack of self-compassion. The quizzes and self-reflection activities helped me become aware of what I’m lacking and also helped me develop a plan to improve my self-care.
This course taught me that taking care of myself is allowed, I can’t remember the last time that I did something just for me. I am fixing to smell the roses. It is “my” time!
These activities helped me recognize exactly what I was missing in my daily routine.
Program Delivery Model
Our educational model targets the learner by meeting them where they are. Using a unique, on-demand mobile learning platform, learners are able to digest the content in small, “bite-sized” offerings that have associated learning activities. Delivered to a cohort, individuals are able to learn asynchronously within a learning community that has built-in strategies for increasing both individual knowledge retention and integration as well as increased sense of community/peer network.
Finally, our programs offer a framework for each organization to customize by incorporating additional organization-specific content and branding. A video from the CNO can be added to the beginning and the end of the program to share specific organizational goals. This customization makes the course experience relevant to the participant’s existing challenges and developmental needs.
The program begins by comparing life’s challenges to a lush garden and the impact of nature’s unexpected events. The habit of self-care is introduced along with the positive impact of reflective practice.
