Ahead of International Day of Happiness on 20th March, dentist Positive Psychologist and founder of Mind Ninja, Dr Mahrukh Khwaja unveils ground-breaking book on resilience and well-being for aspiring and existing dental professionals

Dentistry is a high-stress vocation with elevated rates of anxiety, depression, burnout, suicidal thoughts and self-harm. Chronic workplace stress is a growing concern as it can severely damage the mental health of dental professionals and negatively impact their ability to provide appropriate care. Psychological interventions have been shown to greatly benefit the well-being and emotional resilience of the medical and healthcare community, yet resources that provide preventative tools are limited.

Written by dentist, Positive Psychologist and founder of Mind Ninja Dr Mahrukh Khwaja, Resilience and Well-being for Dental Professionals, is essential reading for dental professionals and other healthcare workers wanting to build emotional resilience and positive mental health.

Mahrukh’s mission is to bring evidence-based interventions to the forefront so that clinicians and teams have the tools early on to not only buffer against anxiety, stress and depression but to feel happier and more engaged at work. This invaluable guide helps readers to do exactly that: utilise tools from the science of well-being, including Positive Psychology, mindfulness, self-compassion, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, to foster happier, thriving careers.

What makes this book unique are the Positive Psychology and well-being brain workouts to help you meld together research and application. Topics include managing difficult emotions, mindfulness and self-compassion, training the brain for maximum happiness, developing a culture of kindness and gratitude at work, utilising a growth mindset when upskilling, harnessing positive leadership and using strengths with patients and at home.

Measure and track your well-being using psychological scales: from a burnout gauge to help you detect signs early, to measuring your levels of perfectionism and optimism. Furthermore, it contains a first-of-its-kind resilience framework, highlighting ingredients to optimise positive health, and a Mental Wellness checklist for teams.

UN International Day of Happiness highlights how well-being matters more than ever. It encourages people to spread ideas that promote peace, kindness and understanding online and in real life and connects with the book’s mission to increase happiness, engagement and thriving at work.

Resilience and Well-being for Dental Professionals is a must-have resource for the profession. Grab your copy of the book by Dr Mahrukh Khwaja from January 26 at
