March 29th: Preventing and Treating Burnout in Mental Health Professionals 

A 3-hour workshop on Friday, March 29th, 2024 @ 1pm, via Zoom 

Gabrielle Armer, Psy.D.

Burnout has become rampant in the field of psychology. For so long, mental health professionals have suffered with the experience of burnout in silence. During this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to identify the signs of burnout, develop strategies to prevent burnout, and learn how to treat and recover from burnout. Although burnout is widely experienced by mental health professionals, talking about experiences of burnout has largely been viewed as taboo. Participants will be asked to demonstrate openness and vulnerability (to the degree they feel comfortable) while discussing a topic that can often facilitate many emotions.
