Orange Book Cover: Burnout and Self-Care in Social Work, 2nd Edition.The first edition of Burnout and Self-Care in Social Work was a breakout hit, providing a guiding light for those who were struggling. In the second edition, author SaraKay Smullens has updated the text to reflect our evolving understanding of burnout.

Once again, Smullens defines creative strategies for self-care and personal growth. In this edition, impacted by difficult, challenging times, Smullens introduces a fifth dimension, societal burnout, to her examination of personal, professional, relational, and physical burnout. She has also expanded on the attendant syndromes, or “wake-up calls,” that tell us burnout is imminent and shows us how moral distress and injury negatively affect all those who are devoted to a just and ethical society.
