About This Webinar
“As practitioners, burnout can crush our compassion and empathy for our clients or patients – and steal the joy and passion that led us into our chosen work as a healer. My hope is that this talk, which will address the problems of burnout, compassion fatigue, anxiety, and depression in clinical practice – with real skills to help you see the light in your work again – brings you a return to your inspiration, and helps to make your work and life clearer, easier, and more joyful.” –Aviva Romm, MD
This webinar, presented by Aviva Romm, MD is the sixth in a series of Food As Medicine webinars presented by The Center for Mind-Body Medicine and hosted by leading nutrition author, speaker and integrative nutritionist Kathie Madonna Swift, MS, RDN, LDN.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Recognize the danger signs of burnout and the difference between this and regular stress
- Understand the serious connection between burnout and personal health and safety, as well as the unique problems that can arise as a result in their practices
- Gain a set of skills that can begin to reverse burnout and prevent it from recurring.
