Preventing Volunteer Burnout

Volunteers and staff at nonprofit organizations spend a lot of their time and energy caring for other people. It is easy for these individuals to lose sight of their own health and well-being. If you want to provide the best care to others, you first have to take care of yourself. This course provides tips on how to recognize burnout and fatigue, identify coping skills, and develop an individualized self-care plan to help you care for yourself and others.

    Very good advice and a great list of coping tools that are essential to well being. Thank you. My husband and I both volunteer with Equines For Freedom and have the ability to bounce ideas off each other as well as vent some of our frustrations.
