TRAINING OVERVIEW: More than the stress of our daily work, burnout has serious consequences on both our physical and mental health. When we feel burnt out, we become exhausted and lose sight of the joy we once had in our work. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for how to handle burnout, there are clear triggers you can watch out for and proven techniques that will help you respond to burnout symptoms. In this three-hour workshop, participants will learn the building blocks for cultivating their resilience, including:

1. The various definitions of burnout
2. Some of the indicators that you may be suffering from burnout
3. Strategies for responding to burnout

Workshop participants will walk away with an easy-to-explain model for assessing burnout, as well as tangible tools that build resiliency and promote growth. 

**This workshop can also be taken on-site to health centers for an individualized training. Contact Emily Bennett for more information. **
