The course in understanding the importance of self-care uses the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI-HSS) to evaluate participants’ experiences and knowledge of burn-out. The MBI-HSS scales are Emotional Exhaustion, Depersonalization, and Personal Accomplishment. Based on the outcome from the analysis, participants will discuss factors that have contributed to their experiences, explore the benefits of self-care, and develop individualized self-care plans. Participants will have an opportunity to challenge conventional recommendations and discuss barriers to finding sustainable self-care practices. At the end of the session, participants will develop their own self-care plans guided by the acronym C.A.R.E. which stands for Compassionate, Affordable, Realistic and Effective.
