SPECIAL PRICE FOR NFDA MEMBERS
Learn to mitigate stress, and achieve a better work-life balance.
When funeral professionals are unable to recharge while juggling families in crisis, the emotional residue of secondary traumatic stress can erode one’s mental and physical health. Common feelings include irritability, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, and worse—clinical errors. Without mitigation, it can even lead to career-ending burnout.
To fully understand how it develops and how to protect against it, we must be aware of our own stressors, examine our work-life balance, and cultivate positive connections.
Proactively developing—and regularly practicing—positive stress-buffering habits can help offset stress and restore a sense of control before it impacts performance, disrupts quality of care, or worse—lead to career burnout.
