Speaker: Corey Reed, LMFT, at EMPAC
Summary: At some point in our lives, we will experience burnout. This training will look at the four definitions of burnout, the different types and what is at the root of the problem. It will also help identify burnout indicators, how to put a stop to the cycle and what to do about burnout on the job-both in yourself and your co-workers. Burnout has a lot of overlap with depressive symptoms so we will discuss the differences and similarities. All this leads to making sure our employees take care of themselves so they can be a productive employee.
