Defining and Preventing Burnout During Covid-19: Changing Perspectives


Tuesday, June 02 2020
12:00 PM - 01:00 PM





Most people are aware of work place burnout - symptoms include feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance or negative feelings for one's job, and reduced professional productivity.


However, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a new level of burnout by not only exacerbating pre-existing causes but adding in its own stressors. In addition, due to social distancing and quarantine orders, many of our normal routines for coping with burnout have been reduced or eliminated.


Join Brandman University's Dr. Marnie Elam, Dr. Lata Murti and Dr. Laura Galloway for a discussion that will include:


  • Understanding what is burnout and why it looks different now than it did prior to COVID-19.
  • Psychological and physiological aspects of why we are feeling the way we are (e.g. Zoom fatigue and aching bodies).
  • How to cope when your normal coping mechanisms may no longer be available (seeing a movie, watching a ball game, etc.).
  • A sociological perspective on the current pandemic to realize we are not alone in our experiences.


This webinar is presented in partnership between the Brandman Career Development Center and the Brandman branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). For more information on AAUW, please contact
