Busting Burnout workshops get you on your feet and working to reinvigorate your connection to your self, your colleagues, and your teaching goals.  Facilitator Erin Maxon uses a mixture of small and large group exercises, cross-arts methods, and physicalized dialogue to deliver transformational results.  Busting Burnout workshops for educators are based on the most modern research on child development and effective education.  Tried and tested, these techniques are immediately applicable to your classroom or educational institution.  


"We're so grateful to Erin and Giverny at Busting Burnout for lending their creative lens and wisdom to help us design our curriculum. They worked with us to create a list of theater-based group activities for young people designed to improve active listening skills, foster creative risk taking, and build empathy. They walked us through ways to adapt each activity to meet the needs of our diverse audiences and age groups. And they offered great suggestions for innovative ways to gather quick feedback from our participants and facilitate student-led positive behavior management. It's so inspiring to learn from and collaborate with such thoughtful artists. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us as we continue to build our program."

"I gained so much!  Knowing the different situations and tools to implement those situations really makes the students pro-active beyond the classroom and hopefully, reflect it in their homes and neighborhoods!" ​

"I took away many tools, specific tools and ideas!! Too many to list, but exactly what I wanted!" ​
