When Dreams Don’t Work: Professional Caregivers and Burnout


 
 
 

When Dreams Don’t Work: Professional Caregivers and Burnout presents a fresh perspective on burnout. This book examines the origins and qualities of the dreams (visions) of professional caregivers and the ways those very qualities are risk factors for burnout. When Dreams Don’t Work: Professional Caregivers and Burnout also looks at the institutions in which professional caregivers (medical, educational, pastoral, law enforcement, and firefighting) invest in their professional dreams, and how those institutions contribute to the burnout process.

Presently available on Amazon. Second (and more reasonably priced) edition is in the making.

When Dreams Don’t Work is a most wonderful and essential guide for anyone facing life’s challenges, sadness, and disappointment. The authors help us understand our very natural responses to burn out and most major perceived setbacks and dilemmas. I recommend this to every manager, investor, and thinking citizen, and to everyone entering the challenging stages of middle age and senior status. My only wish is that I had read this book during my college years, as its guidance is truly magnificent.
