No other book has studied the phenomenon of burnout among child- and youth-care workers across so many cultures using a standard measure to pinpoint the dimensions of culture that increase or decrease burnout. This work examines the problem across 13 cultures, including England, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Israel, Canada, and the United States. Among the consistent themes that emerge are workload, work environment, social support, and coping skills. Recommendations for prevention, remediation, and recovery are offered based on research findings and a theoretical approach emphasizing positive psychology. This volume will be of interest to scholars and researchers studying burnout in any population, as well as those focused on the more general topic of cross-cultural psychology. Human service professionals, especially those in the field of child- and youth-care work, will also find the book helpful. It will appeal also to professors and students in higher education programs training human service workers in the fields of psychology, social work, and counseling.

"This is a well-written book that provides a thorough reporting of Savicki's extensive multicultural research. It consideration of burnout's implications in the post-industrial, global economy is insightful and far-reaching in its scope. While providing an in-depth perspective on child and youth care work, the book is an important document for people in any profession for which burnout is a significant concern."-Michael Leiter, Acadia University, co-author of Preventing Burnout and Building Engagement
