Description

If you are suffering from your work, you are doing it wrong.  Most compassion fatigue and burnout trainings identify the problem as the workplace environment.  “The demands are just too high!”  “They want too much from me!”  “There is too much to do and not enough time to do it.” 

When we frame the problem and solution as external—that something outside of us needs to change before we can feel better or be happy—then we are victims of these environments.  Most of us don’t even know that we are doing it because nobody has ever shown us a different way.  We just go along with everyone else and blame the problems we are experiencing on our bosses/co-workers/workload/hours or fill-in-the-blank.

This workshop will show you how to put your focus and energy where you have control and power—yourself!  You will learn how to change your physical, emotional, perceptual and behavioral reactions at work into intentional efficient responses conducted inside a comfortable body.  Sounds like magic?  Well it’s not.  The resiliency skills you will learn to in this training are grounded in good science and are evidence-based with data from thousands of professionals who have transformed their professional lives. Like them, you will be amazed how these principles are so simple!

In this two-hour workshop you will learn:

How to work the rest of your career without suffering the effects of stress. 

Resiliency skills that you can implement immediately for yourself …and with your clients

Discover a disciplined skills-building process that will transform your care practice away from being a victim of “stressful environments” into one in which you thrive as a mission-driven instrument of healing.
