Understanding and Managing Work Stress and Burnout (15 Wellness Points)*

End Date: 12/14/2021End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description

Work plays an important role in our lives. Although work can offer us a sense of purpose, structure, meaning, and opportunity, work can also be stressful, demanding, and a source of psychological strain. When your workplace stress becomes chronic and is not managed successfully, you may experience burnout – a syndrome characterized by feelings of exhaustion, negative attitudes toward work, and reduced professional efficacy.

In this workshop, we will discuss the risk factors, possible causes, symptoms, and consequences of burnout. You will learn strategies and tools to manage work-related stress, cope with burnout, and build resilience.

Our presenters will be Leah Sodowick and Dr. Jennifer Schwartz from Drexel University.

Leah Sodowick is a clinical psychology doctoral student at Drexel University. She works under the mentorship of Dr. Pamela Geller in the Women’s Health Psychology Lab. She treats patients with mood and anxiety concerns as a practicum student at the Drexel Psychological Services Center. Her research focuses on secondary traumatic stress, burnout, and coping strategies in clinicians working in neonatal intensive care units. Prior to joining Drexel University, Leah received her BA in Psychology from Barnard College and worked as a Research Associate at the UCSF Child Trauma Research Program and as a supervisor for a 24/7 parental stress and support line that serves San Francisco Bay Area families.

Jennifer Schwartz, Ph.D.,ABPP is a board-certified licensed clinical psychologist, teaching professor, and the Director of the Psychological Services Center (PSC) in the Department of Psychology at Drexel. Drexel’s PSC is a training clinic that serves the Philadelphia community. There, Dr. Schwartz trains clinical psychology graduate students in state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches of patient assessment and treatment.
