Wednesday 2 August, 7.00pm to 8.30pm
The challenges over the last few years, have resulted in increasing experiences of depletion, exhaustion and ultimately burnout, which has been identified as resulting from an imbalance between chronic stress and coping resources.
In this workshop we will explore the many factors that may sustain and those that drain our internal resources, ultimately contributing to whether we might experience burnout. The Kaupapa Māori concept of health – Te Whare Tapa Whā – forms a basis for this workshop, including psychosocial, neurobiological, metanarrative insights, as well as practical and lifestyle approaches to building personal capacity. Lived experience as well as professional practice knowledge will contribute to this session.
• Aspects of stress physiology
• Interplay between psychology and physiology
• Tools for self-review
• Practical strategies to support coping resources
This workshop will benefit:
• Clinicians and support workers
• Busy professionals who are stressed and burnt out
