Have you ever wondered if this job should feel this hard?
You became a guardian* to help people. You thought you could make a difference, that you had what it takes. But sometimes you wonder if you’ve made a mistake. It used to feel like something you were meant to do. These days, you’re not sure.
You can feel the cracks in your armor. Sleep. Relationships. The job itself. Giving a shit about any of it. It all seems to be changing and you’re not sure where to go from here.
* Guardian: someone who helps others who are in distress. From first responders, to nurses, to prosecuting attorneys, you are all guardians and your jobs can be incredibly hard. We are here to help.
BURNOUT BOOTCAMP WAS MADE FOR YOU
Guardian work is deeply challenging in ways that many of us never anticipated. The impact of what we see and hear can slowly break us down. In Burnout Bootcamp, we clarify which parts of guardian work wear us down so we can build a plan to combat the burnout. Not a one-size-fits-all, magic-pill plan, but a toolbox of skills that are specifically tailored to your individual needs and preferences.
If you’re feeling the grinding exhaustion of burnout - and you’re ready to fight back - this was made for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
How will I know if this course is right for me?
Well, a few specific questions. Can you feel a shift in yourself - are you tired, cranky, cynical? Or, are the people around you mentioning a difference? Perhaps you are doing fine, but are worried about the divorce, addiction, and PTSD that you are seeing in your field. This course is specifically designed to help you implement the tools you need to either restore or protect yourself in the midst of grueling, exhausting work. If you see the importance and are willing to put some time/energy into taking care of yourself, then this course is designed for you.
Sounds good, but $90!? Isn’t that a little steep?
Yes. And no. This course will require investment of both time and money. If we could sell you a 10-Minutes-to-Guardian-Kickassery video that was truly effective, we would in an instant. But that just isn’t reality. Like physical fitness, emotional and mental fitness requires investment. An Ironman competitor expects to invest in good shoes (and Chamois Butt’r, let’s be real). Likewise, strong guardians invest in their emotional and mental well-being. This is a great step in that direction. And let’s be honest, it’s cheaper than one session of therapy. Consider it preventative medicine.
OK, but I truly can’t afford that, do you offer scholarships?
Absolutely. We believe in making the investment, but equally believe that money should never be an obstacle when it comes to the care you deserve. Just click here to send us a request.
My organization offers education stipends, do you accept those?
Definitely. Send us an email and tell us what you need. We will make it happen.
Can I use this training for CE credits?
We are currently certified to offer EMS and pre-hospital CE credits. CAPCE-approved credit will be provided through the Truckee Meadows Community College CE program. We are slowly working towards other forms of accreditation and will update the list periodically.
How long does the training take?
Well, technically the videos run for a total of 96 minutes (split between four videos). However, we do not recommend that you watch them all at once. This is a percolate process. Like a good cup of coffee, you need to let it sit for a bit. So you might spend 20 minutes watching the first video, jot down notes for another 4 minutes, then let it simmer for a few days. We will discuss getting the most from your time in the first video.
I’m a leader and I want to provide this to my team, do you do that?
Heck yes. We want to provide support to as many people as possible. However, we also want to make sure that the members of your team take responsibility for their own engagement. Sometimes a management-enforced training can result in attendees who are simply putting in the time and checking the box. Send us an email and we can come up with the right approach for your team.
What if I hate it? Will you refund my money?
Yes. If you put in the time and effort, yet still feel like this wasn’t worth your money, we are happy to provide you with a full refund. However, prior to refunding your fee we require a call with one of our team members to discuss your engagement with the program and the areas that you found disappointing. This course is not a passive experience, it requires that you truly engage with building your own plan. If you have not done so, we will not be able to provide a refund. Send us an email to request your refund.
