The author is of the opinion that the changes in the modern world have contributed to the development of the burn-out phenomenon. Burn-out is characterised by physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion which affects a person’s working as well as personal life. Certain people are more susceptable than others, including dynamic personalities, those in the service professions, the modern woman and the middle-aged. At personal and management level there should be an awareness of the causes, signs and symptoms and consequences of burn-out. Once the problem is diagnosed steps can be taken to deal with it.
