The purpose of this curriculum is to provide supervisors in public, private, and nonprofit mental health agencies with specific knowledge and skills to help prevent staff burnout, a common challenge in social service organizations. Burnout is especially widespread among mental health staff. Reducing the incidence and severity of burnout is intended to help address the larger problem of recruitment and retention of qualified and motivated mental health staff, especially in agencies which serve economically and emotionally marginalized individuals. This training curriculum offers a 1-day workshop for mental health supervisors that supports knowledge acquisition and skill development. The workshop includes didactic, role playing, audio-visual, and brainstorming techniques to educate mental health supervisors about burnout, its impact on consumers, staff and agencies, and to provide intervention and prevention skills that supervisors can use with their staff.
