In our rapidly changing world, leaders of today must lead others while navigating personal, societal, and professional stressors. Academicians and physical therapists are facing increasing stressors in their professional roles. These factors can take a toll on the well-being and/or mental health of these individuals.
Leadership in physical therapy practice and academia requires the ability to not only support those around them, but also ensure that their personal well-being prioritized.
This course will:
- Look at some of the stressors faced by those in leadership roles in physical therapy
- Offer strategies to promote better mental health of individuals in these roles.
- Provide strategies to facilitate better well-being and mental health of others including students, employees, coworkers, and patients.
- Participants will have an opportunity to strategize and discuss subcategories of stressors including social justice-related, academic-related, health-related, and clinic-related.
