About the Workshop

Content Level: Beginner

The concept of burnout was introduced in psychosocial literature in the mid-70’s by Freudenberger (1974) and Maslach (1976). Unfortunately there has been limited research on the topic of burnout in our professions since then. While there are support systems that have proven themselves effective in some healthcare and other professions, others in the healthcare space - including counselors and interventionists - are at risk for burnout yet do not have such systems in place. This course offers a solution that can lower the risk of burnout and improve the wellbeing for both professionals and those we serve.
