Becoming a Resilient Librarian

 "Becoming a Resilient Librarian: Taking the Path Away From Stress and Burnout"
Part of a special Library 2.0 series with Dr. Steve Albrecht


A 60-minute training webinar presented by Library 2.0 and hosted by ALA author and library service, safety, and security expert, Dr. Steve Albrecht.

Had enough stress in your personal and professional life over the last two years? Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Join Dr. Steve Albrecht for his energizing and tool-based discussion of how to create a “Phoenix Experience” at this critical moment in your life, relationships, and career. It’s time for a rebirth of sorts, to get yourself feeling better, with new intentions, a new positive attitude, and a better way of dealing with life’s stressors. Approach your work with new eyes. Address your stressors proactively. Feel good about where you want to be, what you want to do, and how to get there.


  • Time to get back to BREADS: Breathing, Relaxation, Exercise, Attitude, Diet, Sleep.
  • Learn to develop your “Three E” and “Six R” habits: Enthusiasm, Energy, and Engagement and Recovery, Restoration, Replenishment, Rejuvenation, Responsibility, and Readjustment.
  • Start to set better personal and professional boundaries and stop feeling guilty when you need to say no to the people around you (family, bosses, colleagues, patrons).
  • Use a Stress Scale to measure your signs of burnout.
  • Discover the many resources around you for better mental health and find a therapist that’s the right match for you.
  • Hear (and get a free downloadable copy of) Steve’s ten-minute relaxation exercise.
