Understanding and Preventing Burnout

About This Webinar

Burnout is an epidemic in the workforce. With ever increasing expectations for productivity, reductions in funding, increasing caseloads, and the expectation to do more with less time, staff in social services are finding themselves struggling to find the energy to provide the empathy, caring, and understanding required to support their clients. As natural helpers, inclined to give the best of themselves, social services and community organizations face challenges unknown to other helping professions.

Do you find yourself cynical about your job? Do you feel negative emotions towards or about your clients? Have you begun to withdraw from family and friends and now prefer to spend time alone? It may be time for a mental health check-up. Burnout does not necessary signal the end of ones career but it is a call to action to help bring a person back to wellness and wholeness once again.

This webinar teaches participants about burnout, the impact of burnout on our day-to-day performance, and how to bolster our resiliency so we can come back from burnout or prevent burnout altogether.
