How Burnout Led Me to Trauma Informed Representation
Do you know what burnout looks like? Do you know what to do about it? Do you know why it happens? This workshop is about burnout and secondary trauma, told through the story of my own path through burnout to trauma-informed representation and a realistic understanding of self-care. It is meant for lawyers, social workers, psychologists, and care givers who work with victims and survivors. The workshop will not only focus on work burnout, but discuss how societal structures, especially in underserved and marginalized communities, increases the likelihood of burnout in providers. This workshop will be interactive and use technology to get active participation from the audience.
