Educational Workshop for Health Practitioners: Self–care, Managing Stress, Avoiding Compassion Fatigue, and Burnout

According to Mental Health Australia, burnout rates among health practitioners continued to rise with rates climbing from 80% to 84% from 2020 – 2022.

Further research has uncovered high rates of stress leading to anxiety and depression among what is typically characterised as a ‘highly resilient’ workforce.

It is critical that health practitioners are supported in managing their wellbeing, self-care, and mental health.  And by actively doing so, health practitioners will ensure a more efficient and effective work environment that not only contributes to a healthier work-life balance, but also allows them to sustainably support their clients.

Health Workers who attend our Self–care, Managing Stress, Avoiding Compassion Fatigue, and Burnout workshop will learn:

  • The reality of impacts of stress and secondary trauma in health care
  • The importance of self-care
  • The impact of stress on the nervous system
  • How the human nervous system responds to stress and self-compassion
  • Combating stress using cognitive and physiological strategies
  • Strategies to identify symptoms of compassion fatigue
  • Psychological capital, self-care, and burnout prevention
  • Barriers and challenges to self-care and self-compassion
  • Embedding these workshop learnings in everyday professional practice

Duration: 3 hour workshop with Q&A and breakout discussions included
