Resilience: Preventing Burnout Among Public Health Professionals, Faculty, Clinicians, and Trainees

Diverse KidsPsychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress.  As much as resilience involves “bouncing back” from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth1.

According to peer-reviewed studies, there are actually three different subtypes of burnout — “exhaustion” (feeling overloaded with work's demands or commitments), “under-challenged” (feeling a lack of development), and “worn-out” (wanting to give up and neglect one’s duties).2

Researchers believe the following model illustrates seven key characteristics of a resilient individual in addressing burnout3. Some of these characteristics are intrinsic abilities but all of them can be developed with the right kind of support and guidance. This training spotlight, guided by this model, aims to provide trainings that facilitate the translation of science to practice around the complex nature of personal resilience.

Resilience Model; details are described below
