Dr. med. Mirriam  Prieß - Burnout Is Caused By More than Stress


The right tools for recognizing one’s own burnout dangers

This book shows that burnout is an expression of a healthy human regulatory mechanism, manifesting when people have lost the relationship to themselves, their soul and their environment. Body and soul set a clear border to stress. This thesis is based on many years of observing treatment of burnout patients, which has shown that neither everyday life nor overwork is the primary cause of burnout. In fact, each burnout is preceded by a particular development: the loss of dialogue and the development of conflict.

The book deconstructs the misconception that burnout can be prevented by sheer force of will. It not only gives recommendations on what to do, but also reveals a fundamental mechanism that provides readers with the understanding that makes possible a long-term maintenance of one’s own health.

•A new approach to burnout: not the symptoms (stress, overwork) are the focus, but the actual causes (lack of relationship to oneself)

•Practical and easy to apply: solid advice from years of medical practice
