Clinical Burnout and its Effects on the Addiction and Mental Health Professionals
Presented by John Sanders LCSW, LCAS, CCS
October 29, 2021
1:00pm – 2:15pm ET
(1 credit hour) (SS)
This live, interactive webinar will cover job burnout. This is a special type of work-related stress — a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity. This is not the “I need a vacation” version of burnout. This is a serious occupational hazard especially prevalent in the addiction and mental health field. Working for long periods of time with a difficult population and in a toxic work environment will eventually take its toll. Years or decades of stress, and the unique challenges of working with this population can manifest itself in ways that can make you sick with burnout.
Burnout can make pre-existing physical and mental conditions worse. This webinar will be a discussion of burnout specifically and related to individuals working in addiction and mental health fields, and will be a conversation on how we protect and support each other when doing stressful work for years or decades.
Presenter will self-disclose (as appropriate and helpful) his personal experience with this issue.
- Participant will learn the signs and symptoms of burnout, in themselves and others.
- Participant will learn physical and mental issues caused or made worse by burnout.
- Participant will discuss their experience with burnout, and ways it manifests itself in us.
Thanks, look forward to seeing you there!!
Delta 8 THC: New, Easily Available, and Legal
November 5, 2021
Presented by John Sanders, LCSW, LCAS, CCS
1:00pm – 2:15pm ET (1 credit hours) (SS)
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, is a psychoactive substance found in the hemp plant. Delta-8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the hemp plant but is not found in significant amounts in the cannabis plant. As a result, concentrated amounts of delta-8 THC are typically manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD). Delta-8 THC has psychoactive and intoxicating effects, similar to delta-9 THC (i.e., the component responsible for the “high” people may experience from using cannabis). Delta-8 THC products will get consumers “high.” Delta-8 THC has become popular and for sale in most CBD stores and is legal to sell in all 50 states.
It is important for consumers to be aware that delta-8 THC products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safe use in any context. They may be marketed in ways that put the public health at risk and should especially be kept out of reach of children and pets.
- Participants will develop an understanding of Delta 8 THC and its differences with Delta 9 THC.
- Participants will learn and consider the implications of having a legal THC, which is indistinguishable from marijuana on current drug tests.
- Participants will discuss any implications legal THC may have on their service delivery to people experiencing substance use disorders.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
