Social Work and the Dangers of Burnout

Burnout can be looked at as encompassing three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. The dimension of emotional exhaustion refers to feelings of being depleted, overextended, and fatigued. Depersonalization (also called cynicism) refers to negative and cynical attitudes toward one’s consumers or work in general. A reduced sense of personal accomplishment (or efficacy) involves negative self-evaluation of one’s work with consumers or overall job effectiveness (Stalker & Harvey, 2002). In this workshop we’ll look at how prevalent social work burnout is and what steps you can take to prevent it.
