While much has been documented about the need for advocates to practice self—care, most of this discussion has focused on the need to address vicarious trauma and burnout that advocates experience as a result from working directly with survivors of violence. Furthermore, individual-level self—care practices (such as breaks from work, yoga, baths, etc.) have been proposed as the solution for addressing burnout in most circumstances. However, using examples from research and our own lived experiences, we argue that, in fact, organizational forces such as interpersonal dynamics within organizations, funding constraints, low pay, racism and other forms of oppression, and values conflicts, have a significant impact on burnout and the sustainability of anti-violence work for advocates. Utilizing the concept of "institutional betrayal" to launch our discussion, we will frame a collaborative exploration about institutional and organizational factors that contribute to burnout in this work. Caucusing in alignment with employee roles in agencies will be utilized during our brainstorm to connect participants across agencies for robust brainstorming and envisioning. We will create a space for participants to engage with each other to discuss what organizational and structural forces they see as impacting their work as well as collectively generating strategies for addressing institutional burnout in anti-violence spaces.
