Cynicism, depression, and lethargy are some of the manifestations of burnout. Burnout is present in about 21-67% of mental health professionals. The ramifications can be devastating for our patients and clients, our clinicians and advocates, and for our agencies and the healthcare system, as a whole.
Burnout can and must be prevented. Self-care can and must be promoted. Addressing burnout and promoting self-care will help restore your tendency to be proactive and take the initiative; and it will help increase the show rate for patients and clients. We can help establish an environment that pays attention to burnout and values self-care, for all staff, including the front-line staff, all the way up to the administrative level.
By the end of this live-webinar, you will have learned and masted:
- Critical thinking in clinical care
- The reasons why you are likely to burn out
- The principles and techniques of preventing burnout and promoting self-care
- The do's and don'ts of preventing burnout and promoting self-care
