Minding Your Business - Addressing Burnout in a Culture that Supports Compassion Fatigue and Productivity
1 CEU – FREE
Do you ever find yourself staring blankly into space, wondering how the heck you made it to your destination? How often do you read news and email instead of enjoying quiet time? When you know you should be resting, do you think about business and work?
From stressed to rest, this workshop addresses all stressful components of being a workaholic in a white supremacy culture, while sharing the hard truths of practicing self-care. This workshop addresses indicators of burnout, compassion fatigue, productivity, and countertransference and how it relates to systemic racism. Participants will walk away with tips to practice mental wellness and tactful stress coping mechanisms so they can free up more time to relax, be creative, and develop better DEI solutions.
