As mental health professionals, we can all agree that burnout is dangerous for individuals and our profession. We can talk about how it starts – long hours, heavy client loads, slow progress, apathetic community members, ongoing stress, and more, and what it causes – every kind of exhaustion, ineffectiveness due to being overwhelmed, turnover, fear, depression, dissatisfaction, irritability, and more. As professionals, it is our duty to make sure that we stay healthy for our clients so that we can help them when they need us, which means mental health professionals, coaches, and ministry leaders need to think more about solutions, including how people try to meet their needs, the role of resiliency, and some unique approaches to self-care. In this practical workshop, the presenters will help participants evaluate their level of burnout, how burnout is connected to meeting the five core needs of security, identity, belonging, purpose, and competence, and how to utilize God-given traits to turn burnout around and move towards resiliency.
