What are the objectives in the treatment of a burnout

The treatment of a burnout has two major objectives:

1. Recuperation of symptoms (complaints reduction)
Through a series of interventions, we ensure that people regain physical and mental fitness as quickly as possible and get rid of the symptoms (e.g. fatigue, sleep disorders, irritability, …)

The interventions are first and foremost about the recovery of any sleep disturbances that may have occurred. Secondly, it is about building up a healthy daily rhythm.

2. Prevention of relapse
By identifying the personal and organizational bound risk factors that play a part in the development of burnout and by learning corrective skills, we ensure maximum prevention of burnout.

In the next topic we will present you with the Burnout Assessment Tool (BAT), which gives you a clear picture of your current burnout risk.
