Moral Compass, Ethics, Altruism & Resilience Altruism = selflessness, concern for the welfare of others, and giving to others with no expectation of benefit to self. Can be a pillar of ones moral compass. Is associated with increased resilience. Courage= endurance of the soul Stockdale, 1995, p 16 Moral Courage = standing up for valuesthe willingness to take a tough stand for the right in face of dangerthe courage to do the right thingthe quality of

mind and spirit that enables one to face up to the ethical challenges firmly and confidently without flinching or retreating Kidder 2006, p 72 3 components: Commit to a core set of moral values and principles Recognize that standing up for these principles we may face danger Do what we know is right, even if it means loss, disapproval or shame Enchiridion by Epictetus

Strengthening Moral Courage 1. Self assessment: What are my core values and beliefs? Which are most important to me? Am I living by these principles? Where do I fall short? 2. Discuss with principled people whose ethics you admire.

Honestly evaluate the risks/dangers of defending my core values. 3. Practice. Uphold moral values in daily situations. Avoid avoidance! Giraffe Project What is a real life example? Share with your neighbor a real clinical example when you or a colleague did use your moral compass, and one in which you wish you had done more. How did this

affect you? How has it changed your practice? Religion and Spirituality American culture, 92% believe in God or a universal spirit, 81% believe in heaven, 70% believe in heaven or hell (Gallop Poll, Newport, 2007) Religion = a path to God, the Source of Being Spirituality = that essential human endowment in which direct experience of God can take place (Ann Graber, psychologist, in The Journey Home)

Faith, Guilt, Forgiveness important constructs. How do these manifest in our daily practice of medicine? Ex: post-adverse events, guilt, self forgiveness Religion & Spirituality: Practical practice Set aside time for prayer or meditation daily Make a regular habit of reading scriptures, sacred texts or other writings pertaining to your chosen faith or practice

Designate a physical location for your practice. Maybe this is in your car. Practice a physically active form of spirituality such as walking prayer, yoga, martial arts or liturgical dance Practice a creative form of spirituality: playing music, drawing/painting, writing Become part of a group that worships or practices together. Thank you!
