""Beyond Burnout presents an in-depth sampling of 25 professionals who have survived stress in their public service fields. The sample size was admittedly small; however, the reports of the unstructured interviews were informative. The definitions of burnout and bureaucracy were especially insightful. The author met the objective of offering help to professionals in the public sector who are beginning their careers. Persons considering a career in the helping professions will find this a thought-provoking book and a resource manual for solutions to the problem of burnout."
-"Bulletin of the American Academy of Psychiatry and Law, Vol. 24, No. 4, 1996
""Beyond Burnout falls in the "must read" category for all those in professional roles. Cherniss carefully tracks how a . . . population dealt with early burnout over a twelve-year interval. Based on those detailed histories, he offers useful policies and practices for moderating the intensity of burnout as well as for inhibiting its onset."
-Robert T. Golembiewski, author of "Phases of Burnout
""Beyond Burnout is a remarkable followup to one of the original books on this form of job stress. Cherniss re-interviews people a decade after their bout with burnout, and discovers new insights about effective solutions for this social problem. What he learns from this group of professionals could have important implications for anyone starting down the career path in the human services."
-Christina Maslach, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley and author of "Burnout: The Cost of Caring and co-editor of "Professional Burnout
"Those interested in burnout among professionals will have to rethink their views as a result ofthis well written, thought provoking book. This book is as much about the modern world as it is about professionals in the human services."
-Seymour B. Sarason, Ph.D., Yale University
"Cary Cherniss, one of the pioneers and foremost leaders in burnout research, brings us this important book in which we learn what happened to the new professionals he interviewed ten years ago . . . In the large and steadily growing literature on burnout, there are very few long-term studies . . . this one is a landmark . . . This is a fascinating, enormously useful and readable book, both engaging and practical."
-Ayala Pines, coauthor of "Career Burnout: Causes and Cures
From the Back Cover
This book is about a group of people who became human service professionals. They were poverty lawyers, public health nurses, high school teachers, social workers, and psychologists. They wanted to serve others, and they began their careers with enthusiasm and commitment, caring and compassion. I originally studied these professionals during their first year of practice. Using in-depth interviews, i learned about the stresses they experienced as their idealism collided with the realities of public schools, legal aid clinics, and mental health centers. I witnessed how, in response to these stresses, they lost much of their idealism and commitment. The study became an examination of early career burnout.
