Stress is an undeniable part of our modern life. How stress impacts our body and our mind is fast becoming one of the most talked about health topics. In clinical practice, stress can be a consequence of the mental illness a client is presenting with, or it can be a contributing factor. Either way, it is crucial for practitioners and clients to better understand stress in order to adequately treat it. Understanding stress also involves understanding some of the chronic responses to stress, such as burnout and adrenal fatigue.
During this relevant workshop, Dr Lauren Moss will present practitioners with an understanding of stress. She will discuss how the body and brain respond to stress and how acute stress can develop into chronic stress, burnout and adrenal fatigue. The workshop will equip attendees with knowledge of symptoms, progression, and treatment options. Finally, the workshop will also address stress and burnout as experienced by mental healthcare workers in practice, in addition to providing attendees with practical tools to increase resilience to stress and ability to recover from burnout.
