Preventing Burnout in the Workplace with Christina Maslach, PhD

February 24, 2021

On today’s episode, Dr. Deb virtually sits down with Professor Christina Maslach, an acclaimed social psychologist and professor emerita of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Maslach is a pioneering researcher with over 30 years of experience who defined and identified predictors and the measurement of job burnout, a feeling that many of us have experienced before and during COVID-19. Her work is the basis for the 2019 decision by the World Health Organization (WHO) to include this condition as an occupational phenomenon with health consequences. As part of her work, she also created the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), the most widely used instrument for measuring workplace fatigue, and she has written numerous articles and books, including The Truth About Burnout. We can all learn a lot from Professor Maslach to better understand, reduce, and prevent our daily stress, negativity, and exhaustion while working.
