Burnout

by | Sep 6, 2021

 

Do any of the following apply to you?

-experiencing “languishing” (a sense of stagnation, emptiness or numbness)?
-feeling stuck or having no motivation
-feeling like everything takes longer, that its harder to concentrate, harder to get things done?
-feeling burnt-out, exhausted, tired but haven’t left your home?
-feeling like everyone else is “getting back to life” but you feel stuck
-fed up with your job and thinking about changing but worried about the potential implications?
-realizing things are re-opening but you don’t feel as good as you thought it would?
-worried about the world going back to “normal” and wanting something better on the other side?
-realized you came to appreciate some things in the pandemic like working from home or more family time and worried about losing it post-pandemic?
-got your first dose of vaccine but life still doesn’t feel good?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this 6-week workshop may be for you. This workshop uses evidence-based techniques to address pandemic fatigue, burnout and languishing and how to move forward successfully through the next stages of the pandemic (e.g., “post vaccine”). In particular it addresses the issue that the antidote to burnout isn’t rest, it’s re-igniting a sense of meaning and purpose (e.g., “value-based living”), re-connecting socially, and integrating our experiences from the pandemic into our understanding of ourselves. Participants will be introduced to some of the latest empirically based skills and techniques that have been shown to improve well-being and sense of purpose. The workshop provides real-life, applicable skills to move from languishing to flourishing.

Next program: Starts June 6 and runs Wednesdays 7-8:30 PM Eastern Time (5-7:30 PM Mountain Time; 8-9:30 PM Atlantic Time)

Cost: The workshop fee is $600 and is typically covered by most extended benefits or insurance coverage. Special rate $100 off regular price with CODE: SUMMER2021. Direct billing is not available.

 

Charge Your Battery: Self-Care during COVID

 

These sessions are based on an empirically supported professional resiliency program. These sessions review empirically based skills that individuals can use to engage more consistently in self-care behaviours (i.e., “charge own batteries”) even during this crisis. The ultimate goal is to help feel more engaged and fulfilled not just at work but also at home.

 

Professional Resiliency and Burnout Prevention

Healthcare providers have some of the highest rates of burnout across professions. They also have some of the lowest rates of help seeking. This program offers practical, real-life strategies to help prevent and cope with burnout and improve professional resiliency in healthcare providers. Participants will be introduced to some of the latest empirically based skills and techniques that have been shown to improve well-being and resiliency. In particular, participants will learn to recognize and manage what “gets in the way” of engaging in the self-care they already know they “should be doing.”

Recommended length: 1 day workshop*

 

Charge Your Battery: Self-Care Skills Training for Healthcare Providers During COVID-19

These sessions are based on an empirically supported professional resiliency program that has been adapted for healthcare providers dealing with COVID-19. In times of crisis, health care providers often work hard in selfless ways to maintain the health of their patients. The stress this creates may lead to increased susceptibility towards burnout and mental and physical illnesses. These sessions review empirically based skills that healthcare providers can use to engage more consistently in self-care behaviours (i.e., “charge their batteries”) even during this crisis. The ultimate goal is to help feel more engaged and fulfilled not just at work but also at home.

    Additional Resource:

    We also recommend you to purchase Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley’s book called “Healthy Habits Suck” as a great evidence-based self-help book.

    Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST.

    If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to.
