Module 2

Digging Deeper: How the Biology of Stress Informs Burnout Prevention

This module has 2 videos totaling 35 minutes. Part 1 from Mandy Doria, MS, LPC, NCC, RYT-200 reviews the components of the biology of stress and summarizes Dr. Novick's supplemental video based on how it is relevant to preventing and mitigating burnout and stress injury. Part 2 with Leslie Choi, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Mandy Doria, a Licensed Professional Counselor will discuss the importance of regaining a sense of control through the use of a tool called the Individualized Resiliency Plan (IRP). The 5 elements of the IRP will be referred to throughout the series.

Part 1 (23 minutes)

Part 2 (12 minutes)

Refer to pages 28-30 in your TOOLKIT where you’ll find the opportunity to write down elements for your own IRP. We will be referring to this tool in other sessions as well and encourage you to keep it in an accessible place (along with your Stress Continuum and Battery Snapshot) where you can refer to it regularly and make needed changes or adjustments to help you “trend toward the green”.


Supplemental (Biology of Stress: 20 minutes)

Watch this version if you are more interested in the specifics on the biology as it relates to the stress response and the science behind learned helplessness.
