Reclaiming Our Wellness: Burnout Reduction & Maintenance for Counselors

Link for Access:

Professional burnout is a common occurrence amongst helping professionals, though even more so over the past two years of the pandemic. More specifically, counselors from all specialties and settings are likely to experience some form of burnout, compassion fatigue, or vicarious trauma throughout their careers. We likely have all read about the symptoms or consequences of burnout, though we often and quickly dismiss the information as “that is not me” or “I know how to get through this myself.” Sound familiar?

Though burnout is important to address and work through, maintaining our overall health and wellness are equally important. This intentionally-designed dual-topic session will first focus on strategies and resources for counselors currently experiencing burnout or compassion fatigue. Part II will help counselors reclaim their wellness and identify tips to maintain a healthy standard of wellness as to avoid future burnout. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will come away with a renewed focus on ways to work through professional burnout and stay well. Case scenarios, interactive discussion, and resources will be provided.
