This 6-hour training will provide a framework for understanding Counselor Burnout as it relates to work; and will pay particular attention to high stress and/or critical work environments (e.g. working with individuals who struggle with substance use disorders; many of who return to treatment multiple times).We will examine the causes of burnout, as well as its implications for the counselor, his or her colleagues, the organization and most importantly, the client. The impact of secondary stressors such as traumatic stress and vicarious traumatization will also be explored.

Upon completion of this training, participants will receive 6 CEUs
