When the Clients aren't up to Code: What to do with Job-Related Burnout, Logistical Breakdown, and Angry Customers
Presented by Dr. Carilyn Ellis

As Bruce W. Stanford so poetically stated, "Shooting the messenger may be a time-honored emotional response to unwanted news, but it is not a very effective method of remaining well-informed." With the systematic breakdown of life as we know it brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and concurrent political, social, and economic crises, the contextual world of building safety is unrecognizable. Stakeholders, implementation standards, and resolutions range from delayed to non-existent due to a variety of breakdowns in needed resources and communication. Prevention has been supplanted by reactive liability mitigation, and everyone has suffered as a result.

Everyone in the building industry is facing burnout, and it is only getting worse with the backlogs manifested by the pandemic needing to be completed at record pacing. Studies of burnout in the fields of construction and builders in the United Kingdom demonstrate it is currently the most vulnerable population to burnout, with 62% of people in this industry endorsing stress. These numbers supersede healthcare professionals and first responders in some regions. In this presentation, Dr. Ellis will talk about the stressors currently facing Oregon builders and their partners, how this has contributed to burnout in the profession, and proactive steps toward sustainability.

Dr. Ellis will also talk about the difficulty of managing stakeholder/ client expectations and disappointments with tangible methods of de-escalating and reducing the burden of “being the messenger.”

About the Presenter:

Dr. Carilyn Ellis is a clinical health psychologist who received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from George Fox University, and her postdoctoral Masters in Clinical Psychopharmacology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She is the past president of the Oregon Psychological Association, has her own private practice, and she teaches graduate psychology and behavioral medicine for George Fox University. She has worked in a variety of medical settings - having completed formal training as well as professional development in the areas of trauma, chronic medical conditions, pain, and end of life care. She has presented on burnout and comprehensive impact of COVID-19 on communities and healthcare workers for the University of Montana, Oregon Psychological Association, and the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine.
