On 28 May 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) included burn-out in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as an occupational phenomenon.
It is described in the chapter: ‘Factors influencing health status or contact with health services’ – which includes reasons why people contact health services, that are not classed as illnesses or health conditions.
Burn-out is defined as follows:
A syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:
- Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion.
- Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job.
- Reduced professional efficacy.
Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in an occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.
This workshop will offer didactic and experiential explorations for understanding and managing the burn-out phenomenon. It is appropriate for mental health professionals, students and the general public.
Payment, in case of cancellation, will be credited to future workshops.
