Working in Social Change

Staying Resilient and Managing Stress

“Non-profits are a restless bunch because we are called to a mission.
We will sacrifice personal health and family time to a mission
and it contributes to burnout.”

Stacy Smith, SVP of Human Resources and Risk Management
at the YMCA of Greater San Antonio

Working in the non-profit sector can be punishing. People working in the sector are sustained by their passion, but that passion can also leave them vulnerable to burnout. Combined with the enormous challenges of working in social change, and it’s no wonder that many non-profit leaders and staff find their work stressful and sometimes personally unsustainable.

While systemic sector challenges aren’t going away any time soon, there are ways to boost your psychological resilience so you can better weather the challenges and stay optimistic and focused on long-term goals. And when pressure really peaks, there are things you can do to manage the stress so it’s less likely to erode your resilience.

Our workshop will give you the essentials of resilience and stress management training, using the principles and practices of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is based on the science of how personal change really works: where to start and what to focus on to maximise your chances of making change that will stick.

In our workshop we will help you to:

  • better recognise that change is worth it
  • identify and boost the habits you already have that support your resilience and help you manage stress
  • uncover the habits that undermine your resilience and your ability to manage stress, and learn how to moderate these unhelpful habits using the CBT framework and tools
  • work through a real-world stressful problem you’re experiencing, using the tools and skills you have learnt
  • start developing personal plans for managing stress and maintaining resilience over the long term, including how to stay motivated over time

The workshop fee also includes a 30 minute one-on-one coaching session to support you with your personal plans and troubleshoot problems.

The workshop will be collaborative and highly interactive, and you will be encouraged to share your knowledge and experiences throughout.
