Sick of “self-care” being little more than a buzzword? Join us to learn an 8-step model for recognizing and managing clinical burnout. We’ll be teaching evidence- and neurobiology-based information and practical techniques, and no one will tell you to buy bath bombs. FAQ’s below for more info!
Q: Who can attend this workshop?
A: This workshop is geared toward helping professionals (e.g., therapists, counselors, grad students, interns/associates, yogis, yoga therapists, social workers, traditional healers, doctors, etc.) at all stages of development. Whether you’re still completing your MA work or you’ve been in the field for years, there’s something for everyone! All are welcome.
Q: Who is facilitating the workshop?
A: Morgan Johnson and Denisa Washington, both supervised by Jennifer Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT. We will be smashing stigma and taboo and sharing our own personal narratives about burning out.
Q: When is the workshop?
A: Friday, May 24, 12-2pm. Plan to arrive a few minutes before noon if possible to settle in so that we can begin promptly at noon! We’ll start with introductions while everyone is snacking/having lunch, so it’s not a problem if you’re a few minutes late.
Q: How much is the workshop and how will I pay?
A: The cost is $30. $20 for grad/PhD students and counseling interns/therapy associates. You can pay with cash or by Venmo at Luminary the day of the workshop. There are a few scholarships available; let me know in the message field of the registration form if you want to attend but feel limited by the cost.
Q: What will I learn in the workshop?
A: You’ll learn an 8-step model, “R.E.C.H.A.R.G.E.” developed to help you become aware of burnout and manage it if symptoms are showing up in your day-to-day life. You’ll hear some personal stories from two helping professionals who have experienced and healed through burnout, learn the hottest cutting-edge research on burnout, and leave with a practical plan for taking care of yourself and becoming a regulated, embodied container for clients working with you. This isn’t your average, cheesy self-care workshop; we’re talking neurobiology, not bath bombs.
Q: Where is the workshop?
A: You’ll attend the workshop at Luminary Counseling, PLLC, the private practice where Morgan counsels under the supervision of Jennifer Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT, in the Mueller neighborhood of Austin, TX. The office is in a little blue house, so 1) be sure to park on the street so that you don’t get blocked in, and 2) enter through the first orange door on the right without the screen.
Q: Will there be lunch?
A: Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. You’re invited to bring a sack lunch. When you register, let me know if you have any food intolerances and I’ll do my best to accommodate you!
Q: Can I get CEU’s for this?
A: Nope, but I’m applying to become a CEU provider, so stay tuned!
