Preventing Burnout and Change Fatigue

The Disability Sector is going through a time of rapid change and disruption. This workshop considers the factors impacting on job burnout in the Disability Sector and will review how workers and workplaces can become part of the solution and not the problem.

Participants will creatively formulate strategies for self-support, reduce the risk of burnout for their staff members, and reinvigorate teams.

The Disability Sector is going through a time of rapid change and disruption. This workshop considers the factors impacting on job burnout in the Disability Sector and will review how workers and workplaces can become part of the solution and not the problem. A key responsibility of organisations is to implement work practices that support the professionalism of staff and maintain worker wellbeing.

Based on the research from Christina Maslach, a pioneering researcher on job burnout, this workshop takes a fresh approach to an old problem. Participants will creatively formulate strategies for self-support, reduce the risk of burnout for their staff members, and reinvigorate teams.

This one-day workshop will cover:

  • The signs and symptoms of burnout and change fatigue.
  • Review stages of burnout and medical implications for burnout.
  • Information on change fatigue and how it impacts workplace stress and burnout.
  • Job and occupational characteristics that are prone to burnout.
  • Creating a burnout friendly work environment
  • Providing workable self-care strategies in an ever-changing work environment
