Keeping our Passion Glowing


Join Psychology Faculty, Deepti Karkhanis, and BC Counselor, Yu-ting Su to re-ignite our passions! Recent research shows that the majority of teachers find work stressful, and a good portion of them experience burnout (Herman et al. 2017; American Federation of Teachers, 2017). The insidious nature of burnout makes it difficult for us to recognize it before we reach our emotional and physical limits, and become detached, cynical, and less productive. In this workshop, we will explore the common factors that contribute to teacher burnout, reflect on our own work-life balance and coping with stress strategies, and identify possible ways to mitigate it. Most importantly, we hope to form partnerships so we can support each other in our journey towards better self-care.
We will meet four times for two hours each in winter 2020. One additional social gathering in spring 2020.

Thursdays, January 23, February 6, February 20, March 5, 12:30-2:20 p.m. D104H
