This highly interactive workshop where we will be focusing on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of burnout in clients facing stress at work, in school, in relationships, and in parenting. The first component will be a didactic lecture where we will explore the common challenges clients face in stressful roles and situations and how it affects them physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

In order to fully understand how to help clients in these roles and situations, participants will first be asked to identify signs and symptoms of burnout in their respective lives. They will be given a log where they identify the various areas of their lives and will be guided through a structured assessment of their health in these areas. The group will learn the principles of developing a healthy lifestyle including; healthy eating, exercise, and healthy relationships. They will practice methods of presenting this material to clients. Elements of marital arts will be incorporated as a method of further exploring the mind body connection. Participants will be introduced to wellness resources in the city where they can refer clients for ongoing support.
