Where illusion and realism intersect in cynicism

On working through blockages in burn-out

ARTICLEAyse Dogan - 58–4 (2020)

SUMMARY

This article offers tools for the therapist who is looking for a way to enhance process directivity in his work with burn-out. From my point of view the burnout syndrome can be approached as a signal indicating blockages on one or more dimensions of human functioning: on the physical level, the psychological level, the social level, the societal/ organizational level and the existential level. The purpose of the support is to stimulate the vitality of clients by working through these blockages. Ideally, clients manage to overcome work and life imbalances so that they can pursue their needs in the outside world in a balanced way.
