AS+T Summer Self-Preservation Series: Burnout-Busting Boundaries

Tuesday, May 28, 2024 | 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. 

Self-preservation refers to a set of behaviors adopted to protect ourselves and maintain personal wellbeing, stemming from an understanding that protecting our physical, emotional, and psychological health is a prerequisite for doing our best work for our students and one another. As staff providing direct support to students with a wide range of lived experiences, it is especially important to curate an approach to self-preservation that fits into our busy lives so that we can fill our own cups before pouring ourselves out for others. This workshop is the first of a five-part experiential workshop series focused on exploring a variety of tools, practices, and resources that support our wellbeing at and beyond work.

Professional burnout is a WHO-recognized occupational phenomenon and a feature of high-performance cultures. Developing healthy boundaries is one piece of the puzzle of burnout prevention & recovery. Attend this session to explore ways that we can cultivate healthy boundaries while maintaining a high level of performance in our work.
