Details: Caring for others is a rewarding profession – and a demanding one. As providers in helping professions, how can we prevent burnout and attend to our own wellness? Resilience-based approaches can help. In this 6-hour training, participants will explore strategies for fostering resilience and preventing burnout, including rediscovering meaning and purpose in our work, boosting positive emotions, building high-quality connections, bringing mindfulness into daily life, and identifying opportunities to advocate for environmental/systemic changes. Training participants will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways including lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and experiential learning activities designed to provide a richer understanding of strategies to foster resilience and prevent burnout in therapeutic and healthcare settings.
Audience: Professionals providing direct services to Veterans and family members in therapeutic, healthcare, and other supportive settings. Although core components of this training will be applicable to a range of healthcare/helping professions, this training is designed primarily for mental health professionals (e.g. clinical social workers, marriage & family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, etc.).
Objectives: 1) Describe the three key components of burnout
2) Explain three strategies for fostering resilience in the face of work-related stressors
3) Assess how, where, and when resilience strategies could be usefully applied in the participant’s own professional setting
