Sleeplessness, depression, anxiety... these are common symptoms of the burnout that often accompanies living with a loved one who has experienced some kind of traumatic stress. It's well known that the loss of a child, a life-threatening injury, sexual assault or combat experience can affect the victim in traumatic ways, but what's often overlooked is how this trauma affects those closest to the victim - the family.
Burnout in Families focuses on the emotional vulnerability of families exposed to the chronic or acute stress of one of its members. Editor Charles R. Figley brings together seven psychologists from around the United States to take a closer look at what's now known as secondary traumatic stress disorder - the burnout that occurs when family members care for or just live with other family members who have undergone a traumatic life event. The authors provide a comprehensive review of the available literature and offer solutions for treating and preventing family burnout and the marital and family discord that inevitably follows.
Burnout in Families is an ideal text for university-level psychology, family therapy and social work courses.

Charles R. Figley (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) is the Paul Henry Kurzweg, MD Distinguished Chair in Disaster Mental Health at Tulane University and a Professor in the Tulane Graduate School of Social Work. He is also director of the award-winning Traumatology Institute. The Institute was recognized in 2000 as the best program of its kind by the University Continuing Education Association. He is a former Fulbright Fellow and was a Professor in the College of Social Work at Florida State University before moving to Tulane University in July 2008. Dr. Figley is also a psychologist and family therapist and was a Professor of Family Therapy and Psychology at Purdue University (1974-1989). He is founding editor of the Journal of Traumatic Stress and currently editor of the journal Traumatology, published by SAGE Publications. Dr. Figley has written more than 200 scholarly works, including 19 books, most of which have focused on stress, resiliency, and coping. His first book, Stress Disorder Among Vietnam Veterans (1978), focused on combat stress and is credited as helping to establish the modern era of traumatology. In his subsequent books, he has continually expanded his focus to other traumatizing contexts.Review:
"Well-referenced chapters provide up-to-date understanding but also encourage the reader to study the unknown effects and the transgenerational costs of family burnout...Clinicians will resonate with the material, think about their own work, and begin to expand on these and new ideas for future study and treatment." --Kay A. Kelly, in Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, Vol. 64, No. 1
