Course Description:

 

Burnout, self-care, and social justice are multidimensional topics with multiple intersections.

This presentation will first provide an overview of current research on two types of burnout: occupational burnout and activist burnout. We’ll explore occupational burnout as a public health issue that relates to race, sociocultural identity, and larger systemic issues. Activist burnout will be explored in relation to its impact on sustaining the efforts of activists and social justice movements.

Self-care is essential for addressing burnout and social justice, and we’ll focus on self-care practices that can prevent burning out at work or in your activism efforts. We’ll also explore deeper meanings of self-care that go beyond burnout prevention and stress management. New perspectives will be offered with a holistic and inclusive approach to self-care as an ethical responsibility and an inherent human right.

Experiential practices will also be offered to support participants’ exploration of these complex topics with compassion, courage, and resilience.
