Prioritizing and Promoting Self-Care to Avoid Burnout

This webinar will focus on self-care strategies for library staff, to respond to the physical, behavioral and emotional impacts of workplace stressors.

This event has passed.

Are you prioritizing your own needs in your workday? Ever-increasing and evolving demands for library services, heavy workloads, and multiple requests from the public can create an environment for staff burnout. While some stressors are unavoidable, prolonged exposure to them can cause detachment, pessimism, and a loss of enjoyment in the library profession. Join us to explore the physical, behavioral and emotional barriers that lead to burnout, as well as methods to mitigate workplace stressors. We’ll look at specific stress-relieving techniques to introduce into your daily activities, and explore ways to bring self-care strategies to all staff in your organization.
