This chapter examines one result of carrying out sustained occupational violence: burnout and the personal, social, and occupational factors related to it. It investigates the consequences when occupational accomplishments and the positive self-definitions attached to them are challenged by changes in social and political conditions. The chapter discusses job burnout and torture burnout, and describes the common characteristics of violence workers who showed no sign of burnout.

Keywords:   occupational violence, burnout, occupational accomplishments, positive self-definitions, violence workers
