Furthermore we looked at what emotions these women experienced during their burn-out period and how their recovery was perceived. When summoned our material we found that burn-out seemed to be a less valid illness, in some cases we noticed a sense of shame connected to the sickness. Burn-out is an unclear expression that causes confusion because it’s a vague word with many meanings. The term has also been criticized for the reason that it refers to something that is burnt down, never to recover. The information our analysis is based upon is gathered through qualitative semi-structured interviews. We have applied Christina Maslach theory concerning burn-out to better understand and gather further knowledge regarding burn-out. Our conclusion is that burn-out is complex phenomenon which is caused by both work-related issues as well as personal traits. (Less)
