"I know what it's like to care deeply about my work and yet feel utterly exhausted by it."

Burnout is more widespread than ever before, and it's time to do something about it.

Rooted in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), this book delves into the systemic, cultural, and economic contexts that contribute to burnout, and gives you the tools to exit the cycle. Exercises and reflection questions help you reconnect with your values to find what's really important, and disentangle yourself from unhelpful thought patterns. By engaging with your emotions rather than avoiding or suppressing them, ACT allows you to respond more effectively and become re-engaged in your own life again. This book will show you how to move out of the burnout cycle, reconnect with meaningful aspects of your work, and make changes that last.

    In a world where the symptoms of burnout are all too familiar, "ACT for Burnout" is a guiding light amidst the chaos. Drawing from personal experience and professional insights, this book goes beyond quick fixes, and offers sustainable strategies drawn from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy that help you navigate the complexities of your emotional landscape. For anyone yearning to reconnect with meaning and find solace from stress, this book is a lighthouse, an invitation to heal and thrive amidst life's challenges. Highly recommended.
  • Karla McLaren, M.Ed., author of The Power of Emotions at Work and The Language of Emotions

    The modern workplace nearly guarantees worker burnout. But systemic change is slow, so in this book, Debbie Sorenson helps workers develop self-awareness and self-protection practices to shield themselves from burnout (to the extent anyone can) and find meaning in their work again.
  • Chris Shipley, co-author of The Empathy Advantage

    In the midst of an epidemic of burnout, this is quite possibly the most important book you can read this year. Clearly and compassionately written, ACT for Burnout goes beyond diagnosis to provide a clear prescription for overcoming burnout in every aspect of our lives. I recognized myself in these pages and only wish this book had been available sooner.
