Life stress as potential risk factor for depression and burnout

Objective: Depression and burnout are two psychopathological labels that have been subject to an extensive discussion over the last decades. The crucial question is whether they can be seen as

Occupational burnout and its overlapping effect with depression and anxiety.

Exploring the 2 burnout models has revealed that depression is an important determinant of exhaustion, and individual characteristics also play an important role in explaining burnout syndrome.

Is it Time to Consider the “Burnout Syndrome” A Distinct Illness?

It is argued in this paper that the syndrome cannot be elevated to the status of diagnostic category, based on an analysis of the genesis of the burnout construct, a review of the latest literature on burnout-depression overlap, and a questioning of the three-dimensional structure of the Burnout syndrome.

Burnout and Depressive Symptomatology of the Employees in Institutions of Chronic Diseases

Abstract The purpose of the research is twofold: a) to determine whether the employees in Greek Institutions of Chronic Diseases show burnout and depressive symptomatology and to connect them with

Orientation: Burnout is considered an occupational health concern. However, research questioning the distinction made between burnout and depression, as well as questions relating to whether burnout

Burnout and Depression: Two Entities or One?

This study provides evidence that past research has underestimated burnout-depression overlap and indicates that the state of burnout is likely to be a form of depression.

The Relationship Between Burnout, Depression, and Anxiety: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

The findings revealed no conclusive overlap between burnout and depression and burn out and anxiety, indicating that they are different and robust constructs.

Depression-Burnout Overlap in Physicians

It might be preferable to use multidimensional burnout inventories in combination with valid depression scales than to rely exclusively on MBI when clinically assessing burnout.

Burnout Syndrome, Mental Splitting and Depression in Female Health Care Professionals

Significant Spearman correlations between burnout syndrome as measured by BM and depression (BDI-II) and splitting (SI) indicated and implications that the defensive mechanism of splitting may allow for the prediction of burnout symptoms which in turn may allowed for the Prediction of burn out syndrome are provided.



Burnout in Nursing Staff: Is There a Relationship between Depression and Burnout?

There is evidence that burnout may be a clinical entity with pathological stress reaction features related to the inability in finding pleasure from work, and it seems that there may be two distinct types of burnout syndromes, of which the one comprising the majority of nurses has little or no common features with depression.

Burnout in nursing staff: a clinical syndrome rather than a psychological reaction?

Burnout and related factors among HIV/AIDS health care workers.

Anxiety, depression, emotional reactions, attitudes, ego strength, and the aptitude for interpersonal relationships and to team work were significant factors in outlining a profile of highly 'burned out' and 'personally accomplished' HIV/AIDS health care-givers.

Depression, burnout, and perceptions of control in hospital nurses.

Despite evidence for a "depressive realism effect," greater perceptual accuracy was not attributable to depression among the more burned-out nurses, and structural equations modeling suggested that perceived uncontrollability is associated with burnout, which, in turn, is related to depressive affect.

Psychological distress in a sample of teachers.

The results of regression analyses indicated that the level of job strain is more closely related to psychological distress and low morale than episodic stressors, including crimes in which the teacher was victim.

Perceptions of control, burnout, and depressive symptomatology: a replication and extension.

Frequency of threats to job control predicted a significant amount of the variance in perceptual accuracy, supporting the view that "burnout realism" is reality driven.

Psychological distress and burnout among buddies: demographic, situational and motivational factors.

It was concluded that although burnout is an important psychological factor in retaining volunteers, it was not possible to identify individuals at risk of burning out either from their self-reported motivations or from demographic factors.

Occupational stress among health care workers: A test of the job demands-control model

Models of occupational stress have often failed to make explicit the variable of control over the environment, as well as the role of job socialization in shaping personality characteristics and
