Thriving with Chronic Illness, Personally and Professionally
Now more than ever, positive psychology plays a vital role in a person’s ability to navigate living with a chronic condition. In our current environment, balancing wellness has proved to be a challenge against our everyday stressors that have led to corporate burnout, emotional instability, and isolation. Adding a chronic condition on top of these challenges adds further complexity to a person’s ability to live well and thrive.
We as a healthcare system need to adapt. A whole-person approach to wellness is a must to enable an individual to prosper both personally and professionally. This includes not only addressing a person’s medical needs, but also the lifestyle and emotional aspects of a person’s wellbeing. Join Trellus Health as we explore the benefits of positive psychology and resilience-driven care on people’s growth and ability to thrive.
