We’re pleased to announce the completion of our June course —Managing Practitioner Stress and Burnout. The objective of the online course was to help Settlement Practitioners recognize and identify symptoms of stress and be able to explore, develop, and practice strategies to effectively manage workplace stress.
A few testimonials from learners:
“The topic and course contents were simple to understand yet very important for the practitioners. The posts on the discussion board were supportive for participants to learn from the knowledge and experience of their peers.”
“Thanks to AAISA team, I had an amazing online experience and learned so much about stress, burnouts, and self-care.”
“It was a wonderful learning opportunity for managing stress in life. I learned a lot through this course which will help me at my workplace as well in my personal life.”
Learners identified three major learnings from the course, including: developing a positive attitude to stress, stress management techniques, and commitment to self-care practice.
This course will be delivered again in 2018!
