Format: Self-Study Online Seminar
So much is known about burnout, yet nothing has been reducing the rates of burnout overall. One significant aspect that has been missing is the crucial role of cognitive distortions, or as SWEET calls them, cognitive errors. In other words, as Einstein so aptly stated, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Yet, we expect to solve burnout without addressing the cognitive distortions that have led to burnout in the first place.
Come join us and explore what the most common cognitive errors related to burnout are. Come see how we can use different strategies to restructure our cognition and help our colleagues, staff, supervisors, loved ones, and clients, recover from burnout, once and for all.
