|How vegans can prevent and recover from burnout|
Burnout is widespread among vegans, whether they are actively advocating veganism or just practicing it in their personal lives. Burnout both contributes to and reflects many problems that weaken the vegan movement, such as infighting, recidivism (quitting being vegan), counterproductive advocacy, misanthropy, and more.
In this workshop, Melanie Joy explains the common causes, manifestations, and consequences of burnout among vegans, as well as ways to prevent and recover from the problem. She also provides practical tools that help participants understand their own experiences and increase their resilience, which increases both their sense of fulfillment and their effectiveness as advocates.
