It goes without saying that the risk for clinical burnout is very high these days. Dr. Geremy Grant, NCSP, is here to chat with me about burnout among school psychologists (and clinicians in general). As a nationally certified school psychologist and someone who cares deeply about the intersection of clinical identity and potential for burnout, Geremy is an excellent individual with whom to have this conversation. Here are some of the ideas that we discuss during the interview today:

  • Systemic and personal strategies to deal with burnout
  • Steps for advocacy within your organization
  • The roles of targeted assessment vs. the “kitchen sink” approach in burnout
  • Scheduling and time management for burnout
