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.
