The work of direct support professionals (DSPs) and others working in intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) services can be difficult, which can lead to burnout. Organizations need to be aware of how their staff members care for their mental and physical health to ensure that they provide the best care possible for the people they serve.
Join ANCOR Diamond Partner Relias to learn about the importance of mental and physical health and how to promote healthy habits with your direct support staff. Both presenters are ANCOR members and ANCOR Foundation Leadership Academy graduates.
In this webinar, participants will learn:
How burnout affects I/DD services
The difference between compassion fatigue and burnout
How to recognize the signs and symptoms of burnout
How to address burnout and support a strong team
Tips for preventing burnout and generating wellness
