Event description

Description

The Naming and Taming Overwhelm for Healthcare and Human Services Workshop is based on Sarri Gilman's book of the same name.

If you work in health or human services, you know how susceptible you and your colleagues are to stress and compassion fatigue. The risk factors and occurrences of becoming overwhelmed are widespread and systemic. Sarri Gilman, LMFT, author, TEDx speaker, and boundaries expert, takes a holistic approach to the problem of becoming overwhelmed rather than targeting single symptoms and prescribing isolated techniques.

There is a 3-hour and 5-hour version of this workshop. The 5 hour version includes continuing education credis.

Sarri guides you through an interactive and immersive workshop to:

  • Understand and recognize what Overwhelm is: the experience, possible trauma, and impact

  • Examine resiliency research and myths; explore compassionate care expectations

  • Learn to respond to a client who is overwhelmed with a 3-step response

  • Learn ways to address your own overwhelm: applying the response to yourself, understanding your feelings, managing boundaries, and creating sanctuary

  • Become equipped to respond to community overwhelm and organization overwhelm (5 hour workshop only)

  • Examine leadership and supervisory challenges to manage and prevent overwhelm and provide support to an overwhelmed team (5 hour workshop only)
