Erin Haugen, PhD, LP, CMPC
Dr. Erin Haugen is a licensed clinical psychologist and sport psychologist at Assessment and Therapy Associates of Grand Forks in Grand Forks, ND. She is also a faculty member at Altru Family Medicine Residency where she is involved in teaching athletic training students and Sports Medicine Fellows in family medicine and physical therapy. She has a PhD in clinical psychology and is a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) through the Association for Applied Sport Psychology. Dr. Haugen’s practice is focused on addressing performance and mental health concerns in athletes from over 20 different individual and team sports. She consults with athletes of all levels and specializes in collegiate student-athletes. She works closely with providers of many disciplines, including athletic training, sports medicine, family medicine, and dietetics. She is passionate about improving mental health for athletes and coaches, interprofessional care, professional well-being, and her 3 border collies.
Given the increased focus on well-being in the sport environment, it is logical to also attend to the well-being of healthcare professionals working with student-athletes. The athletic trainer’s work environment has a wide range of job demands that can represent challenges to well-being. Approximately 30% of athletic trainers report symptoms of burnout, and burnout is a symptom of these systemic challenges. Factors such as perception of stress and social support appear to be important variables to consider. Attendees will learn about factors related to burnout and how athletic trainers can effectively manage these variables in their own lives. Recommendations for fostering long-term personal and professional well-being will also be discussed.
