Burnout and Stress: Just in case 2021 is as bad as 2020
June 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Ryan Dowd, executive director of the second largest homeless shelter in Illinois and author of the ALA book “The Librarian’s Guide to Homelessness,” explains the science behind burnout (hint: it is remarkably similar to trauma!). He will then present the research behind preventing or reducing burnout, with practical strategies for managers and non-managers. He will finish with a quick, science-based technique for stress reduction.
