Burnout is prevalent among health care providers and staff across all medical disciplines, disproportionately affecting some more than others. The causes of this are multimodal, but the introduction of electronic medical records, long work hours, and increased bureaucratic duties all seem to play a role. Traditional means of addressing this problem are often slow to yield meaningful results, and there are multiple barriers that dissuade health care providers from seeking help. This manuscript discusses the current state of burnout among health care providers, and offers a novel psychotherapeutic approach that may yield quicker relief and cut through current barriers to seek care.
