Burn Bright with Dr Megan Swanson

Burning Bright in 2021

Episode One – Walk The Talk

Listen to our webcast with NHS clinical psychologist, Dr. Megan Swanson, M.Ed., PsyD where we discuss burnout, and ways to burn bright in 2021.

Burnout is defined by the W.H.O as an occupational phenomena caused by chronic workplace stress.

It is of increasing concern for people as we navigate the modern day stresses of life and the changing ways we work as a result of the pandemic.

And while there is no single panacea for burnout, there are steps that organisations and individuals can take to help mitigate the risk of burnout.

In this first episode of Walk the Talk we chat with clinical psychologist Dr Megan Swanson about the rise of burnout during the pandemic.

We look at stress, the stress cycle and why we get ill after a prolonged period of being in the stress state, before we discuss solutions to overcome stress and to avoid burnout.
