Burnout And Its Relation To Interpersonal Challenges

1520 words - 6 pages

Discussion
The findings of the research supported the main hypothesis, which stated that burnout was connected with interpersonal challenges. As established in the study, burnout among the therapists engaged in the sample increased in consistency with an increase in the levels of interpersonal problems. The study findings indicated that the relationship between burnout and interpersonal challenges agreed with the perception of the process of psychotherapy as an interpersonal practice (Hersoug et al., 2001). That finding implied that personal events in therapists’ lives played a significant role in the way they performed their therapeutic duties.
The study findings indicated no substantial variance regarding the personal experience of therapists with the process of therapy and its connection to burnout. The number of therapy sessions (if any) that the therapists had attended, or the focus of their previous therapists had little bearing on the burnout levels of individual therapists. It was understandable to expect therapy to relieve some amount of stress associated with therapeutic practice. However, since the study did not assess whether the respondents were currently undergoing therapy, it was impossible to determine any significant variance between therapists who were currently attending therapy and therapists with past attendance experience.
In addition, the study did not assess why the therapists had sought therapy. The reasons for seeking therapy could have significantly impacted the link between individual counselling attendance and burnout. Despite the absence of an extensive literature or empirical studies supporting the significance of personal therapy in the therapeutic process, previous studies had discovered that most professional counselors felt that their personal counseling had positive effects on their professional output (Kottler, 2010).
According to the study findings, work setting played a significant role in burnout levels. Therapists who practiced in institutional environments reported considerably higher levels of burnout than therapists who practiced in private settings. Going by that finding, the study corresponded to another study by Rupert and Kent (2007) whose findings indicated that psychologists who worked in an institutional environment had little power in determining their working schedules and the type of patients they met. The lack of direct charge coupled with huge workloads was probably responsible for the difference in burnout levels.
The findings concerning the relationship between demographic variables such as the age of a therapist and the number of years a therapist had been practicing typified the findings of previous studies (Baird & Jenkins, 2003; Rupert& Morgan, 2005). The study indicated that young therapists with little experience displayed more levels of burnout that their older, experienced counterparts. One possible explanation for that development was that young therapists who had little...
