Published Research

The Center invites healthcare professionals to be our partners in developing resiliency tools that can help us meet the unique challenges of our profession. We rigorously evaluate our programs with standardized measures and in-depth interviews.


Participants consistently demonstrate declines in burnout and stress and improvements in well-being from before to after our interventions. Our evidence-based approach to program development helps us deliver burnout prevention programs within a time frame that even busy HCPs can work into their schedules.

Ongoing Research

"Developing and maintaining resiliency for workplace stress and burnout among healthcare workers"

In collaboration with Justin Benzer, Ph.D., at UT Dell Medical School, we are conducting a Cain Foundation grant-funded project in 2022-2023 to determine the long-term effect of Resiliency Training on healthcare professionals. 


"Evaluation of a 6-hour Resiliency Training for Healthcare Professionals"

Survey data was collected from 2020-2022 on over 165 healthcare workers who attended a 1-Day or 6-week Resiliency Training. Preliminary analyses suggest participants experienced significant improvement in resiliency skills and significant decreases in burnout and stress. A manuscript is in progress.


"Self-Compassion for Parents of Children with Chronic Illness"

In collaboration with Lauren Gulbas, Ph.D., at UT School of Social Work, we are writing a manuscript about the processes through which parents learned to be self-compassionate in an intervention.
