Are you experiencing stress, depression, and/or job dissatisfaction? Are you looking to audit yourself, your values, and your beliefs to determine if you are experiencing burnout? Do you want to learn how to help yourself or help others exhibiting the same signs of burnout? 

This poignant and witty lecture covers all aspects of identifying the signs of stress and burnout and the factors that lead to it. It includes examples that likely strike home for many who work in healthcare and offers resources for helping oneself or one another. The lecture begins with definitions of stress and burnout and asks hard questions about personal and profesional values and boundaries, and finishes with a list of non-negotiables for someone wishing to prevent burnout.
