Burnout Prevention for Aviation Professionals

This course is intended for aviation professionals seeking to prevent or recover from high levels of stress or burnout.

What the Course is About

This course sets out to address the prevention and recovery of high levels of stress and burnout. It is intended for all aviation professionals seeking to expand their learning by taking an in-depth exploration of the topic. The course offers the opportunity to gain an understanding of one’s self when it comes to averting or dealing with high levels of stress and burnout.

The risk of reaching a stage where an individual is burnt out is increasing due to high work and life demands. If left unchecked, burnout can lead to more serious problems related to wellbeing such as anxiety, depression, as well as serious biological implications. Research continuously highlights strong links between high stress in the aviation industry that can lead to burnout. 

The course will equip participants with a good theoretical understanding of what burnout really is through the explanation of different models. Importance will also be given to a reflective and experiential way of learning through some self-assessment exercises. 

Having a theoretical understanding of burnout and self-awareness are essential but they will be substantiated by knowledge on strategies for burnout recovery and understanding unhealthy coping mechanisms. Ultimately, participants will also leave with an understanding of how to develop and foster coping strategies in the face of burnout.
