Research - Clinician/Staff Level

Burnout, characterized by high levels of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization (negative or cynical attitudes about patients), and a diminished sense of personal achievement, is very common among mental healthcare providers.

Health care providers, particularly those who work in the mental health field, are at high risk for experiencing burnout – high levels of emotional exhaustion, cynical attitudes towards consumers of services, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment.

The purpose of this research study was to rigorously test the impact of the BREATHE intervention in a randomized design and determine longer-term effects of the training, to examine the organizational contextual factors increasing or reducing burnout, and to design an overarching intervention framework for the implementation of BREATHE that includes organizational factors.
