Partners Healthcare at Assembly Row, Somerville
Program Summary: This program will describe how the brain and body are burdened by early or prolonged exposure to stress by engaging the stress system (allostasis) and resulting in a variety of changes that include neural and synaptic change, accumulation of oxidative stress, immune production of inflammation and if left unchecked, loss of both homeostasis and resiliency (allostatic load). Through the science of mind-brain-body interactions we now have a more comprehensive understanding of how to prevent and counteract these harmful changes through specific lifestyle behaviors that delimit allostasis and work to restore homeostasis and resilience.
Outcomes for this program: This course is designed to broaden understanding of the stress system and its causative and exacerbating influences on disease and symptomatology. It will also describe neural and molecular changes of specific lifestlye behaviors that buffer the harmful influence of prolonged stress. Lastly, by applying this knowledge to oneself and enacting these skills the learner will develop resilience and be protected against provider burn out.
