How Teachers can Cope With Burnout
The burnout process isn’t a runaway train if you recognize the stages of burnout. According to Mark Gorkin, “The Stress Doc” and LCSW,
A person recovers and expands his or her strengths and possibilities through a crisis when:
1) getting proper and sufficient support; someone trained in crisis intervention and loss,
2) confronting denial, false hopes, cynicism or helplessness,
3) grieving past and present losses while turning guilt, hurt, anxiety and aggression into focused energy and
4) acquiring and applying skills and technology for turning new problem-solving options into productive attitudes and actions ~Mark Gorkin, The Stress Doc
Gorkin’s website has a multitude of good advice about successfully dealing with stress, and he is also a humorist. Something for everyone.
