Dr. Erin Lea discusses the important role that shame plays in our lives. She dissects the reasons shame is so prevalent in our society and shares the ways we can turn that dreaded feeling into a positive thing that empowers us and allows us to grow. As a clinical health psychologist in infectious diseases and gastroenterology at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center, Erin Lea strives to empower individuals with diverse medical and psychological conditions to optimize their health and well-being. She is also a graduate of CWRU’s Department of Psychological Sciences where she holds an appointment as an adjunct assistant professor, teaching Adulthood and Aging and Psychological Assessment.

 

The New England Assembly of Schools Faculty Development Workshop / Art Zwerling Consensus Conference held in 2019 was filmed with the intended purpose to meet the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Programs (COA) requirement for Health & Wellness/Substance Use Disorder (SUD) curriculum and continuing education. The five lectures build consensus on (re) defining a healthy work environment and introduce to faculty and students alike concepts of healthy coping skills and resiliency strategies to reduce stress and maintain a healthy lifestyle. These strategies practiced, along with knowledge gained, can help prevent unhealthy coping and mitigate the occupational risk of SUD among anesthesia professionals. The significance of this learning is to create a healthier student body, workforce, and as a consequence, to optimize patient safety.
