Emotional Resilience for Physicians (ERP)




This program offers physicians practical solutions to avoid or decrease emotional exhaustion. It provides tools to enhance a sense of well-being, awareness of the emotional reactivity, attention to personal concerns and the medical decision-making process. Built on the core practices of mindfulness, positive psychology, and behavioural change principles, this life-changing evidence-based course provides physicians with a step-by-step guidance to manage their everyday stressors.

This three-level program was developed to help physicians to:
  • decrease emotional exhaustion
  • manage depersonalization
  • optimize awareness of emotional reactivity
  • decrease unproductive mood changes
  • bring about greater comfort in managing physician-patient relationships
  • provide a balance between personal and professional life
  • improve levels of mindfulness
The program consists of 3 sections with 35 topics. The sections include:
  • tools and techniques to provide a relief – emotional triage – for challenging situations physicians might encounter every day
  • ‘rehabilitation’ style exercises that support physicians in managing the persistent stressors
  • activities that deepen mind and body connection and enhance emotional healing to manage and/or prevent burnout
