Brain Hacks and Breasts: The Science of Compassion

Location: Beach and Gulf Rooms

Monday, February 6, 2023 ~ 9:10AM - 10:15AM

Understand how compassion (instead of empathy) can guide us to protect and care for ourselves and our patients/clients. Understanding the science behind stress and trauma processing allows us to steer clients in the direction that will bring them to a place of joy and recovery. Using breast cancer patients as examples, this presentation will help you learn how to communicate effectively, hold a boundary of compassion, and ensure that you go home at the end of the day feeling fulfilled instead of exhausted. You will walk away with compassion-based communication tips and an emotional first-aid kit that you can use to improve your own well-being. 

Learning Objectives:
- Analyze how initial interactions can profoundly affect client/patient experience.
- Review cognitive research on the ways that stress affects mental processing.
- Discuss different interventions and how they improve client/patient care & engagement.
- Build a toolbox of methods that support you as a caregiver.
