Overview

This book is a major revision of R. Golembiewski, R.F. Munzenrider, and J.G. Stevenson's Stress in Organizations: Toward a Phase Model of Burnout. The authors use some of the same basic data to develop the phase model of burnout, and then examine the support for the model that has emerged since the first book was published. . . . This is a logically constructed progression with a high level of statistical sophistication. The authors have included a great deal of data (presented in tables, graphs, and figures) and a comprehensive bibliography. The writing style is consistent with the content, producing a professional book suited for advanced students and specialists. Choice

Phases of Burnout provides effective, practical methods of dealing with burnout. Including an easy-to-administer test of strain, the book describes norms to gauge the seriousness of burnout and to guide ameliorative efforts. The authors demonstrate how the incidence of burnout can be estimated with little cost and in various organizational settings. The test assigns individuals to one of eight phases of burnout. These phases co-vary with numerous personal and organizational measures of satisfaction and well-being. The phase model is thus the basis for efforts to remedy the widespread and persistent incidence of burnout.
