Recognizing and Overcoming Burnout in the Time of COVID-19



Thank you to all who attended the presentations co-hosted by the Interagency Committee of State Employed Women and the Washington State Women's Commission on stress management and self care. 

After one year of living through the pandemic, we are all still collectively adapting to the challenges of changed working environments. The COVID-19 crisis has impacted all of our daily lives, causing inevitable stress and strain on our mental and physical health, sometimes in ways we may not recognize. 

In How to Get Your Cup Filled, Linda Tilson and Jared Bull taught us how to recognize the 12 Stages of Burnout, and practical strategies to overcoming it.  

In Coping With COVID-19: Behavioral Health Trends, Workforce Impacts, and Resources, Dr. Kira Mauseth discussed common symptoms as our brains and bodies respond to crisis, the challenges we face in the coming months as we continue to navigate disaster response and recovery, and how to prevent burnout and increase resilience factors moving forward.
