Preventing burnout: Successfully responding to challenging behaviours and interpersonal events in practice

Register by August 4, 2020 at 10:59 a.m. (Eastern Time)

Occupational therapists frequently encounter challenging behaviours in practice. Emotional demands of dealing with challenging interpersonal events can lead to burnout. This webinar introduces the interpersonal reasoning process of the Intentional Relationship Model (IRM) as a guide for remaining therapeutic, intentional, and mindful while responding to emotionally taxing events in practice.

This webinar will illustrate commonly experienced challenging behaviors and interpersonal events in occupational therapy practice. The presenters will describe the six-step interpersonal reasoning process for responding to emotionally-taxing events in clinical practice. Strategies to support clinician’s ability to interact with clients in an intentional manner and facilitate active engagement in valued occupations will also be explored.

After taking part of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize and label challenging behaviours and interpersonal events that have the power to impact the therapeutic relationship.
  2. Apply the interpersonal reasoning process of the Intentional Relationship Model to effectively respond to challenging behaviours and interpersonal events in practice.
