Hans-Peter  Unger, Carola  Kleinschmidt - Don’t Let Work Make You Sick!


Working till you are burned out?

Psychological exhaustion is steadily evolving into being a major reason for work-related illnesses. More and more employees get caught in a downward spiral. It starts harmlessly: growing deadline pressure, lack of appreciation. Often fear of losing the job follows which leads to excessive self-demand. In the end the diagnosis is stress-related debilitating depression.

This book is groundbreaking in showing the mechanism of creeping exhaustion. It describes alarm signals and ways of getting out of the downward spiral. And it goes right to the core of the matter: according to new laws, employers are responsible for the psychological well-being of their employees. Not only each individual must act, but political and corporate measures have to be taken, too.
