Burnout can be defined as a syndrome of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and reduced personal skills that occurs in some people. This is a reaction to chronic emotional tension created from continuous contact with other human beings, in particular if they have problems or reasons of suffering. So it can be considered a type of occupational stress.
The core of the discomfort is constituted by an overload emotional followed by the exhaustion of motivational resources. The answer to this situation is the emotional exhaustion: the individual feels drained and exhausted, he lacks the energy to adequately address the work and the psychological resources are consumed. This condition becomes apparent when the subject feels that he has almost nothing to offer to others, for whom he develops feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, depression, anger, impatience, irritability, increased tensions, conflicts and sullenness. After examining the phenomenon subjectively and environmental, we will see what are the remedies to combat it effectively and prevent it.
