Hacking Burnout for Professionals Who Do Too Much +

Karen Cassiday, PhD, ACT

This presentation will cover the latest research on helping mental health professionals avoid, prevent and recover from burnout.  Professional burnout occurs when employers ask too much and fail to express appreciation.  It also occurs when professionals fail to say "No" so they can say "Yes" to living a values driven life lived with grace.  Imposter syndrome and perfectionism will also be addressed as factors contributing to burnout.
