Breakout Session: A Boy and his stuffed Tiger

March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Few have any hesitation in saying that emergency management is a demanding vocation.  Saying that we have been or are consistently “busy” is an understatement.  Living in this status is not only exhausting, it is virtually impossible, leading us to our “breaking point”.  On the surface, Calvin and Hobbes is a story about an imaginative boy and his comfort toy tiger.  However, there is a vast amount more that we can learn from the comic about finding a way to let go of reality and allow our bodies and minds to relax.  Finding a stress relief can be pivotal in surviving a career in EM, while maintaining a positive attitude and home life.  In this presentation, we will develop an understanding of work stress, identifying signs of burn out, and how we can combat this is both ourselves and our employees.
