The Willingness Team collaborated with Betapsi, the Psychology Students Association, to present a Burnout seminar in the KSU Common Room, at the University of Malta. This seminar was on 25th April 2023. Burnout is the experience of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion resulting from prolonged stress exposure.

This seminar explored Burnout from the perspectives of biomedical, human resources, and psychology, allowing for a multidisciplinary approach to the topic.

The seminar was moderated by Claire Agius Ordway, and the opening presentation was given by Eric Abela, president of Betapsi. Following that, there was a session on “Are we glorifying burnout?” held by Danica Cassar, a Health Practitioner. The following session was on “Managing Burnout through Self-Compassion”, led by Dr Ronald Zammit, a Clinical Psychologist. Then Dr John Torpiano, a consultant paediatric endocrinologist, spoke about “Burnout: The Medical Consequences on Physical Health”. Lastly, Dr Chris Dalli, Lawyer & CEO, discussed “Navigating Burnout: Insights from a Lawyer”. The seminar concluded with a panel discussion and closing remarks.
