Working with others in a caregiving role carries the potential for great rewards, but also leads inevitably to burnout and stress. In this workshop, you will explore the factors that lead to caregiver burnout, build an understanding of the way this work transforms our experience, and develop strategies to care for the caregiver through the use of experiential exercises focused on mindfulness, guided writing, gratitude and meditation. You will discuss the processes known as caregiver burnout, countertransference, and vicarious traumatization. You will identify factors that contribute to burnout and more importantly explore and develop self-care techniques to nurture and revive yourself.
