Topic:  Riding the Burnout Wave: A Sociological Approach to Understanding and Tackling Burnout


Keynote Summary:  

Nobody is completely free from the effects of stress. No news there.


There is nothing wrong with the exhilarating feeling of being challenged, with the adrenaline that a limited amount of stress (the kind you can keep under control) can bring to our professional lives, but how much is enough? Where is the thin line between positive, creativity-fostering stress, and simple, straightforward burnout?


During this presentation, we will uncover and discuss the elements of burnout using sociological principles, aiming at creating a scaffolding of strategies that would allow the participants to put together their very own "survival kit".


Be prepared to participate! This will be the kind of talk where you'll have to walk the walk!
