In 2019, the World Health Organization officially classified burnout as an occupational phenomenon. It falls under the umbrella of problems related to employment and unemployment. Symptoms range from feelings of depletion to increased mental distance from one’s job.
Risk factors that contribute to burnout include long-term job stress, lack of control, work overload, lack of community, and conflicting values.
Thankfully, a therapist can help you recover from work stress and burnout and create a meaningful life and career that fills you up instead of depletes you.
