With Bernice Botha
Burnout is a common experience among counsellors due to the nature of their work, which involves daily exposure to the stress and trauma of others. It is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress that can lead to reduced productivity, increased absenteeism, and even job loss.
This course aims to provide counsellors with knowledge and tools to prevent burnout. Join Bernice Botha to gain insight into this topic, where participants will learn about the causes and symptoms of burnout, as well as various theories and models used to understand it.
Additionally, the course covers approaches to manage and prevent burnout by addressing negative perceptions of the work environment and enhancing coping skills. By the end of the course, participants should be able to identify the warning signs of burnout, develop strategies to prevent it, and implement techniques to manage and overcome burnout symptoms.
