Veirdre Jackson, Ph.D.: Reset From Burnout

Thursday, February 17, 2022, from 2:30 to 4 pm

Webinar summary:  One of the most significant difficulties that so many of us are experiencing is overload and burnout. As a result, many of us are navigating the need to create a greater sense of harmony between our load and our limits. Unfortunately, if caregivers, clinicians, community leaders, and educators are leading from a position of overload, they have no margin for themselves or for those with whom they serve.

Participants will be provided tools to increase personal margin and manage toxic stress by exploring community care for themselves and those around them.
Group conversation and a good old “town hall chat” will also support, collectively, finding ways to translate this into programs, practice, and community environments.
So join us as Dr. Veirdre Jackson shares a message of hope and recovery as we Reset From Burnout.
