Continuing Education

Managing Compassion Fatigue and Burnout

Date: 10:00am - 12:00pm PDT June 16, 2018 Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate School

Lewis & Clark Graduate School

Working in service of others puts can put educators, practitioners, counselors, social workers, volunteers, and a myriad of other professions at risk for burnout.

Burnout can bring about reduced productivity, diminished engagement, and dampened energy and motivation, as well as anxiety, and depression. 

While burnout is considered an occupational hazard, few of us are trained on ways to self-guard ourselves and help prevent it. 

In this presentation, participants will learn how to recognize, accept, and take action to manage burnout. We’ll cover validated techniques of mindfulness, self-compassion, as well as common misconceptions of self-care. 

This workshop is part of the Portland United Against Hatetraining series and is free and open to the public.
