Theme: Professional burnout affects people who work in helping or in managerial professions and teachers are a very likely group to be affected. Burnout is a condition that is self-destructive and contagious. It is stress, the lack of motivation and emotional fatigue that are associated with it. How can the initial signs of burnout be spotted? How can teachers, whose professional activity lies in motivating and inspiring students, also inspire their colleagues (and themselves) to avoid burning out? In this webinar I will look into the background of burnout and share some teachers’ ideas about how stay away from it.
