Help your students build resilience and thrive in care professions! Root Strength: A Health and Care Professionals’ Guide to Minimizing Stress and Maximizing Thriving discusses principles of self-care that can help prevent emotional fatigue and job burnout in highly stressful workplaces. An evidence-based approach examines how the care professional can develop self-compassion, mindfulness, relationships with co-workers, and perceived satisfaction with one’s career. Especially timely today, this practical manual shows how students can apply these insights on the job and enhance their personal well-being in real-world health care settings. With the prevalence of mental health issues among care professionals — including rates of PTSD and major depressive disorder (MDD) — appearing much higher than that in the general population, never has a resource like this been more required!

    • Focus on both theory and practice allows for self-assessment and the ability to build resilience and thrive, with concepts underpinned by research.
    • UNIQUE! Journeys case studies highlight a care professional’s real-world experience/concerns, encouraging you to think about how you would handle the situation as you read through the chapter; the chapter closes with an effective method to handle the real-life situation, demonstrating how to apply the lessons learned.
    • UNIQUE! Clear and conversational writing style and metaphorical roots/tree framework makes it easier to understand concepts.
    • Practical exercises throughout the text allow you to build and strengthen your own metaphorical roots.
    • Vignettes demonstrate how concepts apply to real-world scenarios.
    • Attuning for the Journey Ahead sums up the content at the end of each chapter, ensuring that you understand the key concepts.
    • UNIQUE! Special boxes contributed by Dr. Crosbie Watler, MD, FRCPC help you understand and navigate through professionals’ mental health challenges.
