Burnout is perhaps both a product of our time and a legacy of our history. It may by connected with our escalating pace of life, with radically changing job content, job skills and values. Moreover the family is no longer the source of support in the job market that it once was, passing knowledge on from mother to daughter, from grandfather to grandson. There is greater potential for greater freedom and for the accompanying insecurity. Each of these factors suggests ever present stressors that could escalate into that state implied by burnout - a level of strain beyond the individual's normal coping abilities. These factors are compounded by living in an age of dramatically extended life spans and increased social, personal and vocational expectations. The workplace itself has become an area of intense commitment. Today's jobs often demand higher levels of skill and greater self-starting abilities. Burnout can also be examined as a product of history. For burnout in the early part of this century, for example, read shellshock, or combat or battle fatigue. This book examines burnout as a worldwide pandemic and by means of the phase model. It is examined in terms of its contemporary, historical, social and industrial basis. The effects of burnout are seen - system costs, environmental problems, mental, physical and emotional strains - and solutions are suggested.
