Burnout Prevention Programs: A Must for Staff Development.
Casteel, Jim Frank; Matthews, Doris B.
Following a description of the pattern of burnout symptoms, which include attitudinal, emotional, and physical components, measures are discussed for determining individuals' reactions to stress and their tendencies to "burnout." A discussion on strategies to cure or prevent burnout includes consideration of three basic methods: cognitive restructuring; time management; and various forms of relaxation training, such as visualization, quieting reflexes, autogenics, and biofeedback. It is suggested that an inservice program for teachers on the identification and control of burnout should be considered an imperative by school administrators. (JD)
