Mindfulness, Meditation and Managing Stress

November 29, 2022 | 12:00 PM CT

This course is eligible for one hour of CE/CME for MDs, PAs, NPs, RNs, LPNs, LVNs, Social Workers, and Long Term Care Administrators.

Healthcare professionals are charged with substantial expectations in order to support patients and families in stressful situations. While it may be difficult to find an hour or more to implement self-care, the use of short, frequent mindfulness practices offer the opportunity to pause briefly in the day to reset our mental and emotional state. A growing body of research suggests that short-term intensive mind-body healing practices may lead to significant and sustained increases in perceived well-being. 
 
Aside from meditation, mindfulness practice applies to areas of life such as how much sleep we get, the kinds of food we eat, body movement or exercise, how we structure our restorative time, as well as cultivating health emotions. Creating brief times oe small, manageable strategies (micro-practices) contribute to our ability to form and secure ways to build lasting benefits. 
 
This program offers the opportunity to examine and practice techniques that can be adapted and applied to your schedule and needs to cultivate a life of joy and well-being. 
 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define mindfulness, meditation and well-being and identify the relationship between them
  • Develop an understanding of how mindfulness, meditation and well-being impact all areas of life. 
  • Identify and create strategies to implement mindfulness and meditation techniques for improving well-being.

Dr. Dena Register is a seasoned music therapy clinician, educator and researcher, who specializes in program development. As a Fulbright Scholar in Bangkok, Thailand, she developed the “Therapeutic Uses of Music” training to begin building awareness and appreciation of music therapy as a healthcare discipline among medical and education personnel. She developed and launched the first music therapy Masters degree program in Southeast Asia at Mahidol University College of Music in 2013 and continues her work there as a consultant, teacher and researcher.
 
In the US, Dr. Register’s is primarily centered on the recognition of music therapy by state governments and the recognition of the MT-BC credential as the required credential for all practicing professionals. As the Regulatory Affairs Advisor for the Certification Board for Music Therapists, she works with music therapists across the country on obtaining this professional recognition. 
 
Dr. Register also serves as the Director of Program Development for Enlighten Continuing Education (www.enlighten-ce.org). Her clinical experiences provided the foundation for her teaching interests. She is the faculty leader of study abroad programs for both students and professionals interested in healthcare innovation, international perspectives, and cultural humility.
 
Clinical work, education and cultural immersion led to her interest in holistic, trauma-informed care and how clinicians are able to build and utilize resilience. Techniques in meditation, mindfulness and higher states of consciousness led her to explore how the principles and practices of these topics interact with her work as a music therapist and healthcare professional. In exploring various types of meditation and mindfulness practices, Dr. Register was led to deeper study of Ayurvedic lifestyle and Primordial Sound Meditation with Dr. Deepak Chopra. As a Chopra certified meditation teacher, she leads meditation sound healing practices at the Chopra MindBody Zone in Lake Nona, FL.
