Conference theme

In daily life, we are often forced to face stressful situations, especially in the workplace which, if poorly managed, can lead to chronic exhaustion and therefore in the so-called Burnout Syndrome. In 1976 Selye defined stress as “a non-specific response of the body to every request made on it”, which can lead to both positive and negative consequences.
This syndrome is a specific type of psychophysical discomfort, which mainly affects those who are engaged in activities that involve interpersonal relationships.
The conference program, therefore, will deal with knowing and understanding Burnout Syndrome as a consequence of high stress and the main interventions in terms of prevention, planning and treatment.
The conference aims to train / inform those who work every day in educational and scholastic places where the relationship implications are very noticeable and whose goal is aimed to help others.
Therefore, we will take care of knowing in detail the work stress, the history of Burnout syndrome and the main interventions and practical techniques to prevent and intervene.
Specifically, the conference aims to help train educators and teachers through the acquisition of notions about Burnout Syndrome and the various perspectives that distinguish it.
And finally, to deepen the knowledge on the attitudes to be adopted by the individual and the organization and on the methods of prevention and learning of practical interventions to deal with stress.
