FSAP Presents: Helping Helpers Help Themselves: Increasing Professional Resilience and Navigating Burnout

This presentation includes tools to support those in the “Helping” fields (providers, support teams, professors, learners, etc.) in effectively assessing their Professional Quality of Life, identifying areas of individual need, and choosing targeted tools to support work-life balance. Providing care to others comes in many forms, both in and out of the workspace. This presentation is designed to offer research-focused insight into the spectrum of personal impact caring can have on wellbeing and empowers “Helpers" to care for themselves as effectively as they do for others, with a focus on developing more sustainable balanced lives.
