Managing Burnout: A new, live, virtual course

We have introduced this course to our repertoire in response to requests to provide a virtual session on managing burnout during the pandemic.

Working with the pandemic restrictions and general uncertainty has taken its toll, with many reporting that the prolonged home and work stress have led to burnout symptoms, including physical and mental exhaustion, social detachment, and a reduced sense of worth.

This 3-hour course will help participants understand what has caused these symptoms and the positive and practical actions that will help them to address the condition based on the latest scientific evidence.

Content includes:

  • Understanding what burnout is and its relationship to pressure and stress
  • The different causes of burnout
  • How to deal with burnout:
    • Identifying any habits that may have contributed to burnout
    • Employing habits of self-care and self-compassion
    • Finding a sense of purpose and meaning
    • Developing a sense of autonomy and control
    • Regaining a sense of connectedness
    • Boundary setting and achieving a good work/life balance
    • Scheduling breaks, start/stop times, minimised multi-tasking and untethering from technology
    • Building healthy lifestyle habits that stick: regular exercise, effective nutrition, rest and sleep
    • Breath, visualisation, body movement, grounding techniques to counter burnout

Key outcomes

  • Understanding what burnout is
  • Recognising habits that increase risk of burnout: how to take control and counter these with healthy habits
  • Motivation to employ self-compassion
  • Techniques that regain a sense of control, positivity and sense of meaning
