“Standards for competent practice in response to trauma are an ethical obligation of the profession, as the likelihood of encountering trauma survivors in every practice setting is very high.” (CSWE). There has been an increasing awareness of this over time, and world events such as 9/11 and worldwide health crises like COVID-19 make this even more salient. Participants will be provided with a working definition of stress. The goal of the workshop is to be able to demonstrate a general understanding of the physiological and psychological responses to different types of stressful stimuli. To ensure optimal client care it is important for therapists to monitor and maintain their own mental health. There are a variety of tools to assess this, and one measure is the Maslach Burnout Inventory. This measures six areas of work life as well factors of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and personal accomplishment. Participants will have the opportunity to use research validated measures to assess their individual profile, identify factors that drive burnout and develop strategies to address this.
