Burnout in the workplace is the result of a build-up of anxiety and stress that lasts for long periods of time. Although there may be additional contributing factors, the stress and anxiety an employee feels are the results of a combination of constant work demands, stressful situations, increasing work pressures and feelings of not having any control over work. Although the problem of workplace burnout has a direct and detrimental impact on the employee’s physical, mental and emotional health, it also affects their co-workers, management personnel and everyone the employee has contact with while performing his or her job. In fact, job burnout negatively affects the company itself.
The diagnostic process will usually involve two consultations, one with a mental health care specialist (psychologist or psychiatrist), who will ask you about your symptoms, your thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns, followed by a series of individualised neuropsychological assessments performed by a neuropsychologist. A physical examination, laboratory tests and imaging scans are sometimes necessary to rule out other physical problems that could cause your symptoms.
In cases where a diagnosis of a disease has been established, our multidisciplinary team will do everything humanly possible to treat symptoms and prevent them from progressing further, involving as many specialists as required, hence improving the quality of life, the emotional health and the well being of each individual.
Risk Assessment & Prevention
Risk assessments, prevention strategies and tools are used as it is far more efficient to prevent a disease from developing rather than try to treat it once it has progressed. However, in cases where a diagnosis of a disease has been established, our multidisciplinary team will ensure to its upmost ability in treating the symptoms and prevent them from progressing further, hence improving the quality of life, the emotional health and the well-being of each individual.
The structure of the Dementech Burnout Prevention Program (BPP) is based on a scientific and a practical analysis. BPP combines a blended learning approach with a six-week group workshop.
Blended learning is a combination of multiple approaches to learning in which we use an integrated approach that includes mindfulness based cognitive therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and stress management.
