Providers Thriving Together — Medical Magical Thinking, and Why the System Wants you to Keep Doing It

May 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the Providers Thriving Together series, part of the Thriving Project initiative. These free virtual drop-in sessions provide a facilitated space to experience camaraderie and peer support in the service of activating our collective resilience. At the sessions, presenters – usually rural peers from around the province—will share practices, frameworks or ideas they’ve found useful. Sessions will prioritize time for exploring these themes in both small and large groups.



Presenters: Dr. Cecile Andreas

Facilitator: Dr. Shireen Mansouri


Topic: Medical Magical Thinking

During this session with Dr. Cecile Andreas, we will:

  • Recognize systemic and individual patterns and pressures that lead to overwork and burnout 
  • Identify areas of personal choice and agency in our response 
  • Define action steps to respond to systemic demands that overtax our systems 


Fill out the registration form. We’ll send you a calendar invite, along with monthly reminders of session dates.
