Abstract (Summary)

The significance of human service worker burnout is critical as it can lead to emotional exhaustion and adversely affect the quality, consistency, and efficacy of direct care and interventions for clients in need of social services. The use of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) training has been utilized as an evidence-based intervention that can help workers learn stress reduction skills and promote self-care. The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal for Jewish Family and Children's Service Center in Long Beach for a training workshop addressing stress and self-care skills to prevent burnout. The proposed workshop will provide education on symptoms of burnout and mindfulness related strategies to help promote coping with job related stressors. The funding source selected for this workshop was The Weingart Foundation as this program coincided with their funding priorities. The actual submission or funding for this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this workshop or grant proposal.
