Understanding & Managing Stress through Mindfulness

Dr Belinda S. L. Khong

 

LLB (Hons), PhD, MAPS, MCCounP

 

As professionals—psychiatrists, psychologists and lawyers—we experience ongoing demands and challenges at work and in our personal lives—increasing caseloads, clients’ responsibilities, deadlines, and reduced work-life balance. We continually encounter human vulnerabilities, frailties, and dilemmas. But how do we manage the vulnerabilities and dilemmas in ourselves and take responsibility for our own well-being, while attending to the needs of others? To help others, it is important for us to first learn to understand and manage our own stress. Stress operates and impacts on the physiological, psychological and social and has significant consequences for health, work-life balance, relationships, and job satisfaction. This workshop is designed to help participants to understand stress, the mind-body connection, and explores some strategies to manage stress through meditation and mindfulness. Meditation and mindfulness practices can assist us in becoming more aware of the workings of our own minds, enhance our ability to cope with changes and challenges at work, communicate more effectively and respond skilfully to our professional and personal needs. The workshop will examine ways of applying these skills and practices at work and in daily living. The workshop will include experiential practices for the participants.
