Burnout Prevention and Self-Care  CMTE Courses

with Ami Kunimura, MA, MT-BC

Resilience Over Burnout: A Self-Care Program is an in-depth and online self-care program.

This self-care experience is an exploration and immersion into sustainable self-care and burnout prevention.


Resilience Over Burnout: A Self-Care Program is approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for 31 CMTE credits.

Ami’s self-care program for helping professionals enlightened me to aspects about my own care and compassion that may have been standing in the way of expanding to possibilities in my career and practice.

Ami’s program imposes a discipline of introspection and self-acceptance, and provides valuable tools to understand and prevent burnout, and maintain one’s health and wellness to perform a long and satisfying career as a helping professional. It’s like diving into a deep and honest journey into yourself and coming out the other side feeling compassion for yourself and your personal growth.

I’m grateful to Ami for bringing so much to my attention in this very comprehensive journey into self-care.

Self-care is often talked about, but is much more difficult to put into practice. Ami’s book not only breaks down the reasons why the idea of caring for ourselves is important, she offers a number of ideas and life changes to consider in order to more fully put these ideas into daily practice.

Suggestions are provided in a non-judgmental manner and the reader is encouraged to self-reflect at their own pace. This book would be helpful to therapists at any stage of their career and serves as a gentle reminder to allow ourselves permission to take care of us as well as of those we care for.
