The Burn Thru Project
Many high-functioning people deal with Burnout with Avoidance, Isolation and Denial... a response that most often deepens the problem.
Burnout is an epidemic that devastates lives. There is so much misunderstanding around this problem, for example, the idea being that Burnout is just a consequence of "job stress".
Burnout is particularly prevalent in the field of healthcare, where it not only contributes to lowered quality of life for professionals but it also negatively affects patient care and leads to workforce shortages as physicians leave their chosen professional in droves.
Among physicians for example, recent research has demonstrated that 54.4% reported experiencing at least one symptom of burnout with a 63% burnout rate among U.S. family physicians. The same study found that only 35% of family physicians report being satisfied with their work-life balance. What's more is that these findings appear to bear out across all medical specialties.
Burnout is a problem that has profound physical, psychological and social consequences yet it so often goes undetected by those who run into it. Conventionally, the three key dimensions of the burnout experience are overwhelming exhaustion, feelings of cynicism and detachment from the job, and a sense of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.
The Burn Thru Project is intended to serve those encountering burnout and are seeking to leverage this experience to drive positive self-transformation.
