Protecting Mental Health: An Essential Component of Clinical Care
December 14, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Self-Regulation: Exploring How Acknowledging Emotions Can Create Effective Solutions
In the Healing the Healer Series, we recognize that medical knowledge and technical skills are insufficient to prevent mental health challenges and produce well-rounded physicians. To optimize one’s mental health, we must acknowledge healing and growth’s personal and professional components. In this session, we will discuss (and utilize) coaching and EFT Tapping (an evidence-based mind-body technique) to help you acknowledge and regulate emotional states that may prevent you from showing up as your best self.

Melissa Hankins, MD, CPC is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, certified executive coach, and trauma informed Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping) practitioner. She is the founder and CEO of Melissa Hankins Coaching, where she coaches physicians and other high-performers who may “look great on the outside” but are struggling on the inside. Her clients typically struggle with burnout, perfectionism, workaholism, and “trying to do all the things” and feeling completely overwhelmed in the process while doing their best not to show it. She supports her clients in identifying and releasing the limiting beliefs and patterns of behavior that no longer serve them, helping them rediscover and reconnect to their authentic self as they move forward to create the life and lifestyle they truly desire to live, both inside and outside of work.
In addition to leading her own coaching organization, Dr Hankins also serves as faculty for The Academy of Creative Coaching, an ICF-accredited coach training organization.
In her roles as both coach and educator, Dr Hankins is committed to helping others understand the impacts that early childhood experiences (including experiences that may or may not be considered traumatic in the traditional sense) have in the shaping of their thought and behavior patterns and the subsequent results in their adult lives. She is also dedicated to teaching and supporting them in developing skills to shift these patterns to create more desirable outcomes in their professional and personal lives.
Dr Melissa Hankins received her undergraduate degree from Harvard University, then went on to attend Boston University School of Medicine for medical school. She attended Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Residency Program in Boston MA to complete her psychiatry residency, and went on to work in various clinical settings, holding leadership roles for outpatient teams and as Medical Director of an Adult Partial Hospital. In addition, Dr Hankins was appointed by the Governor of Massachusetts to the Board of Registration of Medicine, the governmental body that licenses and oversees all physicians in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Dr Hankins obtained her executive coach certification from the Graduate Executive Coaching Program at William James College in Boston MA. She has received extensive training (including that which focuses on trauma) over the past decade in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping), and is completing her certification through EFT International, the largest accredited EFT organization in the world.
In addition to providing individual and group coaching, Dr Hankins has led interactive workshops and spoken at several healthcare and coaching organizations and corporations, including Weill-Cornell Medical, Stanford Medical School, University of California-Davis Health, Harvard Institute of Coaching, and Microsoft, as well as having her writing featured on KevinMD and MedPageToday. She has also appeared on numerous podcasts discussing issues related to burnout, stress, trauma, perfectionism, managing emotions, and mindset.
Quidest Sheriff, DO, MS, has redirected her ideals of healing patients to healing the healers. Dr. Kiki works to increase mental health awareness and education, authenticity, and transparency in the workplace. To that end, she founded Doctors Under the Radar, a disruptive health startup working to de-stigmatize mental health and normalize physician wellness.
