An exploratory survey of rehabilitation counselors was conducted to investigate the relationship of experienced burnout to self-concept and the job setting. The emotional exhaustion component of burnout emerged as the key factor in the results. Emotional exhaustion was related to work overload and a perceived lack of control. It was also linked to dissatisfaction with certain aspects of the job. These findings are consistent with previous theorizing and research on burnout, and underscore the relevance of this phenomenon for the rehabilitation profession.
