Are you in the position of taking care of others? Helping them? Teaching them? Are you in the business of being a professional caregiver, or have you become one informally because friends, family, and others put you in that position? Do you feel that all your caring, all your efforts to make things right take too much out of you? That no one really appreciates all that you do? If so, you could be among the many caregivers suffering from the burnout syndrome. Is it as hopeless as it seems? No -- for now Christina Maslach, the leading pioneer in research on burnout, offers the help you've been searching for. Using illustrative examples and first-hand accounts, she points out what causes the feeling of emotional exhaustion, the callous indifference to people's problems, and the sense of inadequacy about one's ability to help and relate to others. Written for everyone who has extensive contact with other people in his or her work and personal life, this insightful guide will help you understand burnout and show you how to beat it. Guaranteed to give new ideas and a fresh perspective, it is one book that can help restore your compassion for others and your pride in helping them. Book jacket.

The psychological concept of burnout refers to long-term exhaustion from, and diminished interest in, the work we do. It’s a phenomenon that most of us have some understanding of, even if we haven’t always been affected directly. Many people start their working lives full of energy and enthusiasm, but far fewer are able to maintain that level of engagement. Burnout at Work: A Psychological Perspective provides a comprehensive overview of how the concept of burnout has been conceived over recent decades, as well as discussing the challenges and possible interventions that can help confront this pervasive issue. Including contributions from the most eminent researchers in this field, the book examines a range of topics including: The links between burnout and health How our individual relationships at work can affect levels of burnout The role of leadership in mediating or causing burnout The strategies that individuals can pursue to avoid burnout, as well as wider interventions. The book will be required reading for anyone studying organizational or occupational psychology, and will also interest students of business and management, and health psychology.
