During the Cold War Vienna became an intelligence stronghold. Then the Curtain fell. Yet even 28 years later, Vienna is the world leader in espionage. With at least 7,000 spies groping around in the Austrian capital, every second diplomat in Vienna can be linked to his or her country's intelligence agencies. According to Dr. O'Doherty this makes Vienna the perfect place to study occupational burnout among intelligence officers; the author having been born in Vienna himself, and thus having a strong bond of empathy to the city. The author of 'Bewältigungs- und Präventionsstrategien des Burnout Syndroms bei PolizeibeamtInnen in Wien' (Strategies against Burnout for Police Officers in Vienna), Mark O'Doherty provides an unprecedented insight into the psychosocial ramifications of occupational burnout within the Intelligence Community. The study concludes that disruptive internal communication within the Intelligence Community is the main cause for Burnout; on a psychological, inter-agency and political level.
