Beyond the Breaking Point: Tactics for Tackling Client Burnout

  • Learn Therapeutic Strategies: Explore effective therapeutic strategies tailored to address burnout, including workplace coping mechanisms, setting realistic expectations, and fostering self-compassion. 
  • Empower Clients and Encourage Self-Reflection: Guide clients towards recognizing their own strengths, successes, and limitations amidst burnout. Encourage self-reflection and exploration of coping mechanisms, career considerations, and self-compassion practices.
