The Council on Recovery, 303, Houston, TX, 77007, United States.

This is a workshop for helping professionals. Rates of burnout in our field are high because of the type of work we do in our communities. We are all exposed to secondary trauma, significant levels of stress, and challenging work environments on a regular basis, whether we work in medical settings, schools, community mental health, or in other areas of social justice work. We will be learning about burnout, what to look for, how to both prevent it from happening, and recover from it when it does happen. We will be partnering with Project Make-Believe to incorporate applied improvisational skills to help us integrate and solidify our learning while having fun and getting to know others in the field. We will also talk about our own personal wellness and make a concrete plan for how to take care of ourselves in an authentic and realistic way.  This workshop will provide lunch and 6 CEU's for social workers and counselors. 

Please email kristincarpenter@theolivetreecounseling.com at least one week prior to the event if you have any specific dietary needs or other accommodation needs. Please dress casually, we will be moving around quite a bit, and please wear closed toed flat shoes. 

Space is limited! Register early. 

Cancellation Policy:

In the unlikely event we need to cancel the event, we will refund the full cost of the ticket.

If the participant cancels with more than 48 hours notice we will refund the amount of the ticket minus fees ($5)

About Kristin Carpenter

Carrie Koch
Chief Fun Officer of Project Make-Believe

Carrie developed a specific applied improvisation technique that provides participants a safe and playful place to build resilience. Her process grew from many years of improvisational theater training and her own lived experience with complex trauma. Carrie started Project Make-Believe to help trauma survivors build resilience skills so they can live their lives to the fullest. The funny thing was, the more workshops she taught, the more she realized that trauma is everywhere, and she expanded her services to include burnout prevention and recovery workshops to help front-line trauma service providers. Project Make-Believe is a philanthropic organization that donates a percentage of their services to trauma survivors who have limited ability to pay for their services.
