Organizational Burnout in Counseling Agencies.
Moracco, John; McFadden, Hope
Burnout is a condition that exacts a heavy toll on organizational effectiveness. Conditions that contribute to burnout in human service organizations are lack of funds, lack of flexibility, lack of decision-making power of middle managers, task overload, little recognition for efforts, and nature of client population. Strategies to prevent burnout include instituting a social-professional support group which can provide opportunities for organizational self-assessment, methods to reduce conflict, feedback and rewards, timeouts for individuals, and screening procedures for new counselors.
