A practical guide to burnout

From Nine To Noon, 10:08 am on 15 July 2021

Professor Gordon Parker is Head of the School of Psychiatry at the University of New South Wales, and founder of the renowned Black Dog Institute in Sydney, who has lead groundbreaking research into burnout.  He and his colleagues have just published their research in what they say is the world's first practical guide to burnout, from diagnosis to intervention - designed to be used by both clinical professionals and those experiencing burnout.

Professor Parker says burnout is widespread among high achievers in the workplace, but also in caring professions like health, teaching, and among parents of new babies and those caring for the elderly and people with disabilities.
