  • April 21, 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

This training consists of two parts to include access to the highly sought after researchers and presenters Drs. Emily and Amelia Nagoski via a recorded presentation they created on the science and physiology of the stress response cycle and their book “burnout: the secret to unlocking the stress cycle”. This recording not only provides accessible education on complex human experiences, but also provides modeling for clinicians on how to provide effective psychoeducation for clients. 

The second part of the training expands upon their research through interactive discussion and activities developed by the Nagoski siblings and designed specifically for mental health professionals to support their own burnout and their clients. Dr. Carla Rosinski will facilitate a guided exploration of evidence based strategies of reducing burnout and understanding the stress response cycle.
