How to avoid burnout: Self-care for helping professionals
To help others effectively, we need to have enough ‘spare capacity’, which means looking after our own well-being, too – new research shows us how.
Invest in your health...
The good news is that burnout and overwhelm are not a given of working in roles where we are consistently exposed to others’ emotional pain. New research and insights into ‘buffering’ the impact of this work means that we can consciously choose to put in safeguards to our own mental well-being, whilst also remaining connected and present with our clients.
Emily Gajewski’s course draws on her extensive experience of working as a therapist and clinical supervisor, in the NHS and privately, for over 20 years. Throughout the day, she examines the many ways working in the caring professions can impact us personally and gives you a wealth of practical steps you can take to mitigate them. She also covers the most up-to-date guidance on keeping ourselves well and thriving in caring roles and will help you develop a realistic plan for your own continuing well-being.
