Find your resilience zone at the Tasmanian Pharmacy Conference

Date: 3 February 2021

Life for most of us has always been busy and challenging. Then the pandemic hit, throwing our carefully structured daily routines into chaos and leaving us unsure of what the future holds… not knowing what ‘normal’ looks like anymore.

Coping with uncertainty, while trying to support colleagues and family – as well as looking after ourselves – can make us feel like we’re just keeping our heads above water.

We’re told we need to be resilient, but what does that actually mean? Why aren’t people resilient anymore? How do you look after yourself when life is busy? And if we just get on with things, won’t that be enough?

Miranda Stephens is a Clinical Psychologist from the north-west coast of Tasmania with 25 years of clinical and consulting experience, as well as a teacher of psychology and medical students, developer of innovative mental health services, researcher, and business owner.

Speaking at the Tasmanian Pharmacy Conference, Miranda will provide a practical overview of what our resilience zone is, how to track when we’re in and out of it and provide some brief strategies for getting on top of things when we’re in the thick of it.

Miranda boasts a strong commitment to service delivery and health improvement in rural communities, and also values working collaboratively. She has an interest in the development of innovative and systemic approaches to addressing mental health needs and is the founding Co-Director of Mindfulness Programs Australasia.

For the early risers attending the conference, Miranda will also lead an early morning mindfulness session on the second day of the conference.
