Health Professionals

People who express gratitude report fewer symptoms of physical illness. Experiencing awe might strengthen the immune system. Practicing mindfulness has been linked to less stress and depression. Training in compassion might help physicians guard against burnout and provide better care to their patients.

These are just some of the many findings suggesting how the GGSC’s “science of a meaningful life” has significant implications for health professionals, including doctors, nurses, therapists, and counselors.

That’s why we produce a variety of resources and programs to help them apply this research to their vital work. These resources not only support the mental and physical health of their patients, clients, and colleagues; they also support their own well-being, helping them care for themselves so they can better care for others.

Ultimately, we hope our resources enable health professionals to become agents of change within their organizations, transforming these institutions from the inside out. We are proud to partner with Kaiser Permanente, Dignity Health, and other health care organizations in this work.
