We are living in unprecedented and stressful times both personally and professionally.  Prevention professionals have had to pivot to provide services virtually, consider new ways to complete grant expectations, manage staffing shortages and a variety of other challenges.

Burnout can creep in without us realizing it, which can also impact our work and  personal lives. Understanding the causes of burnout can be a valuable resource to share with those you serve and collaborate with in your prevention work.

Recognizing and preventing burnout can have huge personal benefits. Taking time to think about our own self care and health is critical to overall wellness.

This webinar will provide an overview of:

  • Common causes of burnout
  • How to recognize the signs and symptoms
  • Strategies for preventing and addressing burnout
  • How to share this information with others at work and in the community

The webinar will also include opportunities for self reflection and time for participants to consider next steps for addressing or preventing burnout.
