Resilience and Stress:
Coping With Chronic Stress and Burnout
Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity and thrive in the face of challenges and setbacks. Chronic stress and burnout can have a negative impact on our resilience, but by developing coping strategies, we can better manage stress and prevent burnout. In this skills training workshop, we will explore the role of resilience in coping with chronic stress and preventing burnout.
We will focus on strategies for managing stress, such as setting boundaries, practicing self-care, and seeking social support, and we will discuss how these strategies can be leveraged within work settings to help employees better cope with stress and prevent burnout.
