Moscow Commissioner took part in international conference of ombudsmen

In October, Commissioner for Human Rights in Moscow Tatiana Potyaeva took part in the International Ombudsmen Conference organized by the Association of American Ombudsmen in San Antonio (USA, Texas).

At the Conference, annual reports of representatives of various US states were heard, and also every participant had an opportunity to share his/her experience.

Tatiana Potyaeva spoke about the laws regulating the activities of the Commissioner for Human Rights in the city of Moscow and the Russian Federation, the main directions and results of human rights defenders’ activities.

Within the framework of the Conference there were discussions and presentations. The most emotional was a lecture on the so-called syndrome of «professional burnout», to which those who, by their activities, are forced to communicate closely with people, are exposed. Daily work, sometimes without breaks and days off, with constant physical and psychological stress, complicated by intense emotional contacts leads to life in a state of constant stress, the accumulation of its consequences, the depletion of the stock of persons’ vital energy. Participants discussed methods of combating this condition.
