Show Notes

This week, Dr. Nate Page joins Eric on the podcast! Nate has many titles, including Ph.D, licensed psychologist, certified group psychotherapist; but his education on burnout has come through his own painful journey with burnout.  He began presenting on burnout seven years ago after witnessing the devastating impacts of burnout and compassion fatigue on his own life, the lives of his colleagues, and the lives of his therapy clients.   He soon was specializing in individual and group therapy services for healthcare professionals who are caught in the depths of burnout.

Nate dedicates a significant portion of his career to providing education and training on these topics, which was how Eric was introduced to Dr. Nate Page – at the CHADD conference in 2023 when presenting on burnout!

  • Boredom and stress

  • The importance of taking restorative breaks
  • Preventing the cycle of burnout / Healing and recovering from stress fractures
  • Relationship dynamics, fairness, finding pebbles in the shoes, and potential extra stressors
  • Maximizing the restorative nature of taking time off
