About this product
- DescriptionWherever people are working, there is some type of stress-and where there is stress, there is the risk of burut. It is widespread, the subject of numerous studies in the U.S. and abroad. It is also costly, both to individuals in the form of sick days, lost wages, and emotional exhaustion, and to the workplace in terms of the bottom line. But as we are w beginning to understand, burut is also preventable. Burut for Experts brings multifaceted analysis to a multilayered problem, offering comprehensive discussion of contributing factors, classic and less widely perceived markers of burut, coping strategies, and treatment methods. International perspectives consider phase models of burut and differentiate between burut and related physical and mental health conditions. By focusing on specific job and life variables including workplace culture and gender aspects, contributors give professionals ample means for recognizing burut as well as its warning signs. Chapters on prevention and intervention detail effective programs that can be implemented at the individual and organizational levels. Included in the coverage: * History of burut: a phemen. * Personal and external factors contributing to burut. * Depression and burut * Assessment tools and methods. * The role of communication in burut prevention. * Active coping and other intervention strategies. Skillfully balancing scholarship and accessibility, Burut for Experts is a go-to resource for health psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and organizational, industrial, and clinical psychologists.
