A retreat to promote self-care for professional nurses: Understanding the Role of Mindfulness Meditation to Enhance the Delivery of Nursing Care

The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing will host a retreat to learn how to better deal with the unique stresses of being a health care professional. Join licensed psychologist Katherine Hammond Holtz in exploring the many benefits of mindfulness:

  • Improved self-control and objectivity
  • Enhanced flexibility and equanimity
  • Increased concentration and mental clarity
  • Strengthened abilities to relate to others and one’s self with kindness, acceptance and compassion

The retreat will be held on Friday, April 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Boiler Room. Registration & Breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. The program will include a take-home mindfulness personal practice package with audio recordings of guided meditations from the retreat, a practice booklet, and a reference list of evidence-based research on mindfulness meditation in the field of nursing.
