Burnout Busters: Restorative Strategies for Helping Professionals
A “Helping Professional” is someone who nurtures the growth of or addresses the problems (physical, psychological, intellectual, emotional, or spiritual well-being) of others. The stress and responsibilities of our jobs can take a toll on all aspects of our lives, often resulting in neglect for our own well-being and self-care. This webinar will focus on identifying causes and symptoms of burnout and provide evidence-based strategies and tools for the Helping Professional to flourish at work and in their everyday lives.
