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 their professional dreams, and how those institutions contribute to the burnout process.
