Workshop Description: 

Over the course of the past year, a sense of urgency has developed regarding how to address the widespread experience of Burnout Syndrome. Recent research has emerged in how to more accurately and effectively assess, conceptualize and intervene to assist individuals, teams and groups in addressing these phenomena. This workshop will focus specifically on how psychologists and mental health professionals can best approach this work in a way that extends beyond traditional pathology-based models toward an emphasis on fostering well-being.

Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to: 

  •  Participants will be able to DEFINE components of Burnout and the PERMAH Model of Well-being as extending outside of "pathology-based" psychodiagnostic and psychotherapeutic approaches.
  •  Participants will be able to DESCRIBE current research, assessment approaches and relative shortcomings of existing measures of Burnout and Well-being as they apply to developing personcentered conceptualizations.
  • Participants will learn to APPLY normative approaches (Nomothetic) in the assessment of Burnout to derive more individualized patterns (Ideographic) of manifestation of Burnout experiences taking into account factors not captured through existing measures.
  • Participants will APPLY normative approaches (Nomothetic) in the assessment of Well-being to develop individualized (Ideographic) and tailored behavioral action plans to enhance personal Well-being.
  • Participants will be able to DESCRIBE strategies included in a Burnout/Well-being "Tool-Kit" of empirically supported behavioral approaches to brief intervention to enhance Well-being and mitigate Burnout.
