One thing a clinician can do to prevent professional burnout is understand what it is that makes them stressed. Perhaps, looking at individual stressors is a start to understanding one’s stresses. Another way to prevent professional burnout is by reframing our thoughts this is called self defeating internal dialogue. I personally would use self defeating internal dialogue because it is something clinicians can control where clinician can’t control the situation. Identifying cognitive distortions i.e arbitrary inferences, selective, abstraction, overgeneralization ect is also another way to control cognitive processes. Lastly, it is also important to know when a person is near professional burnout to do the necessary things to bypass it. If for example, a person is near professional burnout and does not know it and doesn’t know what to do, it is likely that they will have a hard to getting out of their burnout stage.

How does a counselor’s attitudes toward their clients affect their life outside the work setting?

As a counselor, it could be difficult to leave work at work and just “shut off” your counselor self once you are outside of that setting. Dealing with clients who have experienced terrible things happen to them can be very difficult, however it is important that we are able to establish boundaries. A counselor who cannot establish boundaries with clients can put them at risk by focusing too much on the struggles they are facing and not living their own life. It is important to not become too emotionally involved with clients because we risk countertransference (Neukrug, 2016).

A counselor who is overly emotional and spends time outside of work agonizing over their clients is likely to experience burnout quickly. This goes along with self-care. We have to take care of ourselves in order to do our best to help our clients. Recognizing that there is only so much we can do and that the client is ultimately the one who has to live their life and be able to adjust to the challenges they face will result in us focusing on our role as a counselor and not getting overly involved or putting the client at risk unnecessarily.

I enjoyed hearing this video because it is important to address burnout especially in the field of psychology. I like the point Professor Morris made when she explains that it is important not to be over emotional with clients because counseling deals with so much emotion’s. It is likely that I will be in a situation where being emotional happens, and perhaps, clients are looking for these type of emotion, but having the appropriate attitude is important. Although, knowing the difference from over emotional and sympathy sounds simple, it can be hard to do at that moment, thinking “what can I do to make it better” and knowing that “we cannot control our clients” directs professionals to the right road of helping clients. These mindsets can also really takes the load off professionals shoulders. Overall, this talk was great to hear because it address an issue that is so common and underlooked.
