SCCIJ October Luncheon

A Healthy Job Environment: Resilience at the Workplace

The SCCIJ is pleased to invite BLCCJ members to its September Luncheon with Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Büchi, Medical Director, Clinic for Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, Hohenegg (Zurich).

All around the world, the number of days of sick leave taken by employees has increased in the past 10 years. This rise is mainly due to psychological -or so-called psycho-somatic- disturbances, including sleep disorders. For companies, it is of major interest to reduce the rate of sick-leave, and it is therefore relevant to understand resilience, which can be defined as “personal stress resistance”. During his presentation, Prof. Büchi will introduce the data and models to understand resilience, as well as discuss healthy job environments.
