This session will help participants to better understand burnout among mental health professionals with a heavy emphasis on assisting each person to identify their own personal triggers and warning signs of burnout and—most importantly—to develop a personal plan to prevent or reduce burnout and improve wellness. Participants will be exposed through both didactic presentation and especially through participatory exercises to a range of possible strategies (drawing heavily from third-generation cognitive behavioral and positive psychology methods) to prevent and reduce burnout. By the end of the session, participants will have the opportunity to draft a personal plan for burnout prevention and wellness.
