Empathy and burnout in the not for profit sector

Empathy and burnout in the not for profit sector: supporting your clients and looking after yourself

27 June, 10am


Research shows that overwork does not help us to be more productive, and yet as the sector continues to be mission-driven, the mission-critical people at the heart of the cause feel the ever-mounting pressure of needing to do – and be – more.

This course follows on from last month’s successful Birmingham course and will support participants to delve into stress, burnout and work-based anxiety. Reflecting on the latest research on self-care and emotional resilience, it will guide you through tools and techniques for staying with empathy for self and others even when the going gets tough.

If you love your job, but often find yourself wondering how you can do it without compromising other areas of your life, this training session offers some answers.
