Preventing Burnout - 2nd Edition (Self-Study)

Self-Study

SELF-STUDY ONLINE SEMINAR

2 CEU for LMSWs, LCSWs, LMHCs, and CASACs


Burnout splits us into different groups:

  1. Group 1: Has no idea what burnout is all about;
  2. Group 2: Hears about burnout, but has no understanding of what it really means;
  3. Group 3: Knows somewhat about burnout but has misleading information about what it really is, what really causes it, and how to solve or prevent it.

Which group do you belong to? What if most of what you have heard so far about burnout was inaccurate? What if preventing burnout was the best gift you could give to your patients, your loved ones, and yourself? Please join us and let us learn together what burnout really is and how to prevent it from taking place to start with.

Please join us.


At the end of this online seminar, you will have:

  1. Learned the framework of the Socratic Motivational Practice to properly prevent burnout with your patients and clients.
  2. Learned the Principles, Techniques, Steps, and Do's and Don'ts of the Socratic Motivational Practice to properly manage burnout prevention with your patients and clients.
  3. Increased your tools when talking with patients and clients by identifying at least one thing you will start doing differently at the end of the seminar, as a result of the Socratic Motivational Practice framework.
  4. Everything you want in one place, including an illustration of how to implement the newly learned skills during our role plays.
  5. Received your certificate by email immediately after your post-test and evaluation are completed.


HERE'S WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR SWEET SEMINARS:

“The welcoming demeanor of the leader and the feeling that there are no ‘stupid questions.’ Also, he did not mind going over several points until we understood them.”

- Ruth, LMSW

“The way the material was organized. I incorporate most of the principles and techniques in my practice (and life), but the organized and theoretical framework was helpful.”

- Rhonda, LCSW-R

“I liked the chat feature and feel it helped make the course more interactive without being overwhelming.”

- Stephanie, LMSW



There are a handful of states that the NASW does not cover because those states want to maintain their independent authority to approve, or not, providers and courses. In New York State, the Office of Professions controls the approval process. We are an approved provider by the NY State Office of Professions. In other words:

  • In the State of New York, SWEET Institute is approved by the Office of Professions under Dr. Sidor Psychiatric Services as a CEU provider for social workers (#SW-0471) and mental health counselors (#MHC-0127).
  • Our live and self-study webinars are individually approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in 46 additional states. SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

What is the SWEET Institute?
SWEET’s vision is to facilitate the empowerment of all clinicians, advocates, and agencies, and in turn, that of patients and clients they serve. Through empowerment, self-care will be promoted, burnout will be prevented, and excellent patient/client care will be upheld. At SWEET, we emphasize “the Why, the How, the What, and Then What," while using the Socratic and Desire Methods. SWEET’s mission is to facilitate empowerment through education, multimodal trainings, and a community established for all clinicians, advocates, and agencies, so we can all grow together.
How different are these seminars? Will I be able to interact with the Course Facilitator(s)?
Absolutely. One of the keystone paradigms of the SWEET Institute is the collective learning process. This is accomplished using the Socratic Method and is based on the most up-to-date adult learning theories. Integrating this process into our in-person and online seminars creates a unique and dynamic learning experience for all of us. It is essential to us that a comfortable learning environment is created, so that anyone who attends our in-person or online seminars can participate and is able to take risks and push themselves to gain deeper knowledge. In our online seminars, this will be done through our chat feature. Also, both Mardoche and Karen are available for consultation and clarification following in-person and online seminars or by email at [email protected]
How will I get CEUs?
At the end of the seminar, you will be completing a post-test for online learning, and an evaluation of the course. Once the post-test is passed and the evaluation completed, your certificate will be emailed to you.
Are you available for in-person or online training for agencies, including those outside New York?
We are! We will first need to learn more about the specific needs of your agency/organization. This way we are able to customize our seminars to ensure that it is the best fit possible for the staff.
I’m an LMHC/LMSW/LCSW, do you provide CEU credits?
SWEET is currently approved to provide continuing education credits to clinicians in 47 states. We are approved by the New York State Department of Education to provide CEU credits to LMSWs, LCSWs, and LMHCs. Our webinars are individually approved by NASW in 46 additional states. The only states we currently cannot provide CEU credits for social workers are Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
