This webinar presents a state-of-the-art overview and seeks to answer four issues: (1) What is burnout? (2) How often does burnout occur? (3) How does the workplace contribute to burnout? (4) How to prevent burnout? Throughout the webinar a distinction will be made between mild burnout complaints and burnout disorder.
