Burnout in lifeline services in the third sector

Ruth's practice-based study  explores the burnout in lifeline services in the social sector. She explores an issuse which many associate with shameful experience of workers having 'got something wrong'. Ruth calls for an acceptance of burnout, and a more open attitude towards it, in order to explore what individuals can do for themselves as well as what leaders can do toprevent and respond well to burnout.
