As the healthcare community continues to deal with the many difficulties of the COVID crisis staff burnout is becoming a major problem for many organizations. Helping staff build their own personal resilience, or just building your own personal resilience is a key part of making sure your organization is prepared for all the other incidents and issues we face every day.
“Building Your Resilience” published by The American Psychological Association provides great advice on how to build personal psychological resilience.
Their article provides a road map for personal resilience to help not just with dealing with COVID but for allowing you to deal with everyday stresses. As the article states, “There are many aspects of your life you can control, modify, and grow with. That’s the role of resilience. Becoming more resilient not only helps you get through difficult circumstances, it also empowers you to grow and even improve your life along the way.”
