Occupational Stress for Library Staff

February 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Join us for a webinar on tactics to reduce occupational stress for library staff!

Workplace stress has adverse effects on workers’ mental health, with an increased risk of anxiety, burnout, depression, and substance use disorder. Today, we are living in the bodies of our ancestors in a world they never dreamed would exist. We inherited the adaptive responses that enabled them to survive, but we use our natural survival mechanisms as an over-response to circumstances that are (usually) not really life-threatening.

This webinar will cover:

  • Acute vs. Chronic Stress
  • Job demands versus job control
  • What your library or organization can do to reduce occupational stress
  • What we can do for ourselves to reduce the effects of stress, both at work and outside of work.

Presenter: Nellie Brown is the Director of Workplace Health and Safety Programs for the Worker Institute at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations. A certified industrial hygienist, biologist and chemist, Nellie earned a master’s degree in a multidisciplinary program in natural sciences and applied science from the State University of New York College at Buffalo.
