The World Health Organization (WHO) recently included occupational burnout in its revised version of the International Classification of Diseases. Burnout, which refers to a pattern of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment is a condition often experienced by those working in the health and human services sector (Maslach, Jackson & Leiter, 1996). This training will help participants recognize how burnout differs from other clinical conditions and learn how those who work with individuals exposed to traumatic events may be impacted. Strategies for improving self-care will be discussed and practiced.
