Virtual Learning Event 6: Workforce Burnout and Collective/Individual Self Care
Delta Center California
The 6th Virtual Learning Event, titled “Circle of Influence Exercise: Workforce Burnout and Collective / Individual Self Care” took place between June and August, 2022.
Building off of the workforce dynamics that have been elevated over the last year, the Program Office facilitated a series of conversations with Learning Laboratory Teams to consider how teams might embody trauma-informed and resilient practices in their organization. Utilizing a ‘sphere of influence’ exercise developed by Rio Holaday, we asked teams to reflect on the systems, structures, and policies that produce burnout and trauma in healthcare spaces and identify what lies within one’s circles of concern, influence and control. Individuals and teams identified concerns outside their influence, and what was within their control and influence to make change and/or initiate action.
