Event description

Description

Caring for others is a rewarding profession – and a demanding one. As providers in helping professions, how can we prevent burnout and attend to our own wellness? Resilience-based approaches can help. In this 6-hour training, participants will explore strategies for fostering resilience and preventing burnout, including rediscovering meaning and purpose in our work, boosting positive emotions, building high-quality connections, bringing mindfulness into daily life, and identifying opportunities to advocate for environmental/systemic changes. Training participants will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways including lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and experiential learning activities designed to provide a richer understanding of strategies to foster resilience and prevent burnout in therapeutic and healthcare settings.

Audience: Professionals providing direct services to Veterans and family members in therapeutic, healthcare, and other supportive settings. Although core components of this training will be applicable to a range of healthcare/helping professions, this training is designed primarily for mental health professionals (e.g. clinical social workers, marriage & family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, etc.).

Trainer: Ann Marie Roepke, PhD


Free CEUs & Clock Hours: Workshop certificate documents hours of instruction toward continuing education and are available for free upon completion of the workshop and submission of the workshop evaluation.
The Veterans Training Support Center is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. VTSC maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
