Therapeutic Relaxation And Enhanced Awareness Training or ‘TREAT’ is a unique experiential self-care program designed for healthcare professionals to help re-calibrate and recover during their busy and stressful work day and life.
TREAT is based on mindfulness and recovery principles, body awareness, relaxation, self- compassion and various self-awareness approaches and education. Participants learn how to pause and find important moments of rest, renewal and clarity to help them navigate life’s many daily stressors and learn how to become more resilient, creative and engaged human beings.
Jo, the founder of TREAT, is regularly invited to hospitals to present on the latest evidence around workplace stress and burnout and provide staff nourishing self-care sessions. The core program is the popular TREAT one hour, 8 week program that has been delivered to a wide cross section of Alfred Health staff, including psychiatrist trainees; leadership teams; social workers; and emergency nurses. Treat is also delivered as a formal session included in staff professional education, wellbeing and development programs.
Results of the Alfred Health evaluations include: 99% of staff making positive lifestyle changes, 100% of staff felt better able to deal with stress and 100% of staff would recommend this program to their colleagues.
The TREAT program was nominated as Finalist for both:
The Victorian Public Healthcare Awards and The Alfred Health Innovation Award 2017
In early 2017, Jo and three creative doctors, with the support of Alfred Health, developed and launched the global and highly successful ‘TREAT’ app: ‘designed by healthcare professionals for healthcare professionals.’ The TREAT app is a free support tool for those participating in the TREAT program or for health care staff wanting to recalibrate and find calm and clarity in the middle of their busy day.
