Overcoming Burnout in the Early Childhood Field: Strategies for Change

Presenter: Ellen Drolette

Based on the book with the same title by Ellen Drolette available at conference or

through Redleaf Press (I can bring some books to sell as well), participants explore

strategies for avoiding burn-out and low-morale and use inspiring stories from the field to

examine the structures and practices that support the development of healthy attitudes,

quality engagement, and optimism in the work place.

Participants will participate in a series of small and large group conversations, self-

reflection, and opportunities that will not only fuel them but help them learn. We will

focus on some one of the biggest struggles faced in early education, compassion fatigue,

mental health, optimism, attitude and being present. Join Ellen for an uplifting,

inspirational, deep dive into morale.
