Sponsored by AHNA, CenTex Chapter AHNA, Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center and McLennan Community College, the Texas Regional Holistic Nursing Conference will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m., October 9, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 10, at the Pearson Auditorium, PACE Education Building, Scott & White Center for Rehabilitative Medicine, in Waco.
Keith Blevens, Ph.D., is the keynote speaker and Resilience is About the Power of Thought is the theme. The Resilience Paradigm establishes psychological experience as not being bound by circumstances or the past. As our understanding of the resilience paradigm deepens, we naturally incorporate this into patient care.
Course objectives include recognizing how resilience develops properties of physical and psychological healing;
identifying the single most important factor that deceptively seems to limit resilience; demonstrating efficacy of insight based learning; and utilizing this paradigm to generalize to all nursing patient care.
Blevens is a nationally known healthcare speaker and innovator. A licensed clinical psychologist for 40 years, he has served on the staff of the Veterans Administration Hospital in Waco and as director of psychological services at Baylor University.
