Poulin, John E.; Walter, Carolyn A.
Social Work, v38 n3 p305-10 May 1993
Conducted national survey of burnout among 1,196 social workers who work with elderly people. Examined extent to which workers experienced emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. Found that levels of gerontological social workers' burnout appeared lower than levels found among social workers in child welfare, mental health, and public welfare. (Author/NB)
