Description

This unique resource delivers proven strategies to help nurses overcome stressors and challenges when—and even before—they arise.

Featuring seven new chapters and new authors, the second edition reflects the latest research on resilience and wellbeing and applies it specifically to nursing professionals. This edition focuses not only on resilience strategies nurses can implement to help themselves, but also provides them with tools they can use to strengthen and motivate patients, their families, and health care communities at large.

The book describes a diverse range of proactive or preventative approaches nurses can harness in a variety of healthcare contexts. These strategies help to develop strength, flexibility, and the determination to adapt to professional challenges that may at first seem daunting. Such strategies as challenging self-defeating thoughts, connecting with positive peers, internalizing positive attributes of leaders, rejecting positions of victim or bystander, and more will help nurses to better deal not only with patients, but also peers, managers, and the entire nursing team. Chapters present first-hand accounts of “resilience in action” and extensive examples that showcase evidence-based resilience strategies, along with discussion questions, creative thinking exercises and activities that promote practical application of material.
