About the Program

This session is designed for individuals wanting to better understand their own current experiences of burnout, compassion fatigue, and/or moral injury as well as their risks for the future. We will pay particular attention to identifying your individual responsibility (for these injuries of burnout and compassion fatigue) while also appropriately assigning responsibilities to larger systemic forces that might be beyond your control. Participants will have the opportunity to complete and interpret burnout and compassion fatigue self-assessments plus a perfectionism self assessment, learn a model of burnout, and also explore prevention strategies and recovery interventions for therapists. Through the use of polling, Q and A, and a chat feature you will be encouraged to share your personal journeys with burnout, compassion fatigue and or moral injury. A significant portion of the learning from this session will come through the practice of re-telling your story within the context of the presented data and also the stories of other participants. 

This session is at the intermediate level and is designed for psychologists and other mental health professionals.

This session qualifies for 3.0 continuing education credits. You must attend the full 3-hour program to get continuing education credit for the event.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize your own symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue and/or moral injury (and compare to symptoms of other participants that are willing to share).
  2. List the five stages of a burnout model.
  3. Practice contextualizing your individual responsibility for burnout within larger systemic factors that might be beyond your control. 
  4. Describe at least two of the unique challenges BIPOC clinicians in the US face with burnout and compassion fatigue. 
  5. Strategize personal prevention strategies and recovery interventions according to your life and work contexts.
