Beating Burnout: The Facts About Healthy Ministry

$25.00

Rev. Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti, D.Min., Ph.D., presents new research on the causes of ministry burnout.

Product Description

Overview

Typical workshops on burnout encourage leading a “balanced life” and promote exercising, taking time off and avoiding overwork. However, research shows that some of the least burned-out people are those who work very hard, and some of those who do burn out actually work much less. There are more important factors that can help stave off emotional exhaustion and sustain healthy, effective ministry.
