Do you feel like you need to give all of yourself to those around you to be successful? To be respected? To be seen? You may be suffering from a concept called Human Giver Syndrome and it may be causing a large amount of your stress. Admittedly, our field requires a good deal of our humanity to make the meaningful music we all crave and support the growth of our students, but it does not need to eat us alive. In this session we will dive into the causes of Human Giver Syndrome and learn concrete ways to process our stress so that we can preserve parts of ourselves for our own lives and extend our careers.
