Workshop – Managing Stress & Burnout
February 7 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree
Burnout, stress, and why science says they matter: What modern neuroscience can teach us about the physiology of stress, its concerning consequences, and practical solutions.
Anna Rapson, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Max Capacity (Unlimited)
Cost (FREE!!) – we want you to take advantage of this workshop. We all deal with so much pressure and stress in our lives. Having a few tools to help out are worth your time!
Modern neuroscience reminds us that our brains are malleable and its elasticity has a longer trajectory than what was once believed. Therefore, there is no set point; we can change our brains, and the way we live our lives, whenever we choose. Evidence indicates overall health and happiness are not only impacted by external experiences, but also by our internal relationship to stress, thought and behavior patterns, and emotional and nervous system regulation.
This workshop will draw upon neuroscience and the science of mindfulness to learn practical, evidence-based tools to manage common work-life struggles with issues such as:
- Impacts of stress on the brain and the body
- Managing stress so it doesn’t become chronic stress
- Expectations that may contradict with what is realistic and sustainable (self or supervisor imposed)
- Burnout – how to catch it and what to do with it
- Imposter Syndrome – how to work with self-doubt and/or comparative judgment
- Work-Life balance – how to keep work from leaking into your offtime or sleeptime!
- Dealing with a difficult or tense work environment
- How to identify and change patterns that ultimately contribute to dissatisfaction and disappointment
No annoying or awkward icebreakers included!
Formal and informal experiential practices that can be applied to your daily life in pragmatic ways will be incorporated. Ultimately, the purpose of this workshop is to enhance your capacity to experience greater satisfaction in your professional and personal lives, as they unavoidably intersect.
