The Burn-out by Dr Christian Stock – Picture: Daytona Beach 2014 –
The burn-out (BO) is a chronic stress (Stress is the cause, the BO is the consequence). And there is no repayment today in France by the governmental social entities for the Burn-out (2015).
There must be a necessary balance between stimulation and tension (See graph)
The 3 main symptoms are:
Physical and emotional exhaustion:
Chronic fatigue, muscular tension, sleep disorder, memory pb, depression, little control over emotions, crying, anxiety, emptiness, isolation.
Above all, it results in a depreciative aptitude towards others. To the extreme; contempt, sarcasm, aggression
Excessive commitment is often the origin. Commitment that can not be maintained indefinitely. We are in the middle between pretension and capacity!
Enthousiasm –> Stop –> Frustration –> Apathy
(Perfection? urgency? Do more ? –> disappointment –> sens ? value ? –> strict minimum)
Internal Stress : personality; quest for success, AT drivers (prejudices), lack of resistance (coherence, resilience, coping, …)
and / or external Stress: Environment: workloads, increased requirements (more info) , regulation, solicitations 24/7, lack of recognition, lack of respect, conflicts of values, …
