Description of Learning Type CE Event: Increasing caseloads, less colleague interaction, more billable guidelines, less support…the field of ABA, and all its highs and lows, can take a toll on our ability to do our job with a smile! In this CEU, with the help of the accompanying 30-page workbook, you’ll learn why burnout is so prevalent, the importance of sleep in the burnout equation, how burnout uniquely impacts the ABA community, and how to kick it to the curb.
