dc.description.abstract Burnout has been proven to affect the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of human service employees, organizations’ economic status, and those in care. Physical illness and mental health issues can be costs to individuals who provide care to others, with resulting increases to organizational overhead, and reductions of best-practices. This study seeks to provide information for Child and Youth Care educational institutions, Residential Child and Youth Care organizations, and individual Residential Child and Youth Care Workers about the importance of a unified awareness intervention to minimize burnout development and its effects. This qualitative study was developed to examine Residential Youth Care Workers perspectives of job stress, their knowledge of educational, organizational, and personal strategies available or practiced to deal with stress, factors that might contribute to stress development within their work cultures, and potential intervention(s) to assist decreasing burnout development. A semi structured interview format was utilized with recommendations for proactive strategies being drawn from the analysis and previous research. en_US
