The Burnt Out Experience

Dr. Samantha Madhosingh worked for years in a school in DC providing mental health and support services. She explains that the source of her feeling burnt out was that . "The kids," she said "were amazing and they had been through so much... it wasn't the kids. It was everything else." The kids were expected to learn so much while having to deal with harsh home situations. The school was a "safe zone" in that, the kids stayed the week at school and went home on weekends. A lot of the home lives involved violence whether that be interpersonal, domestic, or other.

Long story short, Samantha felt like she, and her team, were spinning their wheels when they had no control over the children's learning style, the pressures put on them, or the home lives they were going to and from each week.

She felt ineffective. And that is where her feeling burnt out came from.

How did she deal?

Change the Situation

Dr. Samantha changed her situation. She became a manager and administrator in a program that allowed her to have more control and be more effective in the lives of the children she was working with.

This lead back to her values as a person. She highly values being effective as well as making change for the better in other people's lives. In order to live her life by those values, she changed her situation to fulfill them.
