Caring professionals who are stressed or overwhelmed may locate their exhaustion and dysregulation within themselves — “Do I feel this way because of lack of training, lack of skills? Maybe I’m in the wrong line of work!” Add to this the shift in workplaces to virtual platforms. Zoom fatigue is real and for many, the capacity to learn and share is drifting. Some are internalizing their professional experiences more and others are beginning to disconnect from their role as care provider.
This training is an opportunity to explore why caring professionals so often experience signs and symptoms of burnout. Together, participants will seek to learn and share experiences as professionals and the care strategies used to persevere. Participants will identify self-care methods unique to them and how best to deploy these mechanisms of care as needed. The aim is to find ways to move forward with self-compassion.
This instructor-led training includes opportunities for learning, discussion, group work and self reflection. This will also be suitable for managers and supervisors who want to better support their staff through training, skill development and supervision support.
