  • Burnout Syndrome

Purpose:

In 1982, Steven Hayes, a clinical psychologist, developed Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. In 1954, John Lilly, a cognitive neuroscientist, developed the sensory deprivation tank (known today as Floatation Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy - Float REST), to access a wide range of healing, higher brain functions, and meditation through an unparalleled deep relaxation state. In this study, the investigators aim to examine whether participants in the ACT + Float REST condition will have larger decreases of the burnout phenomenon than those who receive either only ACT or Float REST.

Study Interventions

Intervention Type:Behavioral
Name:ACT + Float REST
Description:The combined intervention will combine ACT and Float REST. An ACT session entails a mindfulness-based training to foster and nurture effective behavioral and emotional responding to distress. A float session entails laying supine in a light-proof, sound-proof tank consisting of a shallow pool of water (approximately 10 inches set to approximately 94.5 degrees to match skin temperature) with a high concentration of Epsom salt (approximately 1200 pounds) for 60 minutes.
