RISE from Burnout

Join us for this online engagement class to discover how to reemerge from burnout to a fulfilling, joyful life. These six interactive sessions will teach you how to RISE – Recognize your worth, Inventory your strengths, Select your lens, and Enjoy sharing your gifts.

Drawing from the research of Kristen Neff, Barbara Fredrickson, Aaron Beck and others, you will learn practical tools based on self-compassion and cognitive behavioral therapy that you can apply in your daily life to facilitate a change in your mindset and improve your outlook. The class will include breakout groups, journaling, and take-home exercises to emphasize engagement, skills development and practice and promote life-long habits.

Note: There will be no class on Monday, 5/31, due to the Memorial Day holiday.
