All mental health providers experience some form of burnout during their career at least once. Most ignore the warning signs until it’s too late, mistakes are made, and licenses and personal relationships become at risk. Pre-COVID, burnout was related to workload, client/students needs being of greater importance than your own, and balancing personal and professional responsibilities. In this new post-pandemic world, the resources and therapeutic terrain has significantly changed, and burnout is even more prevalent. Many mental health/education providers are now experiencing Zoom fatigue, depression, anxiety, and many other symptoms and issues that are novel to the therapeutic/educational community. Common early warning signs of burnout include: feeling tired of or annoyed with clients/students “complaints”, beginning sessions late or ending early, getting sleepy or “spacing out” during sessions, taking ethical shortcuts, and many others.
We often preach self-care to our clients/students, but are we taking our own advice? It’s time we did. In this seminar, Daniel J. Fox, Ph.D., will examine the signs, symptoms, and sources of burnout and explain how understanding your Emotional Intelligence can renew professional perspective and excitement while helping you eliminate key stressors in your life and in your practice.
This program will examine the benefit of restorative, emotionally intelligent relationships in your life to improve outcomes and your personal support network. By understanding the potential of Emotional Intelligence and keeping a wise mind on your mental and physical health you can explore who you are within your therapeutic relationships, enhance your growth as a therapist, and apply these powerful tools to benefit you and your clients/students.
