The article reviewed the specifics of the phenomenon of emotional burnout, the leading symptoms and phases of emotional burnout, characterological features that contribute to the emergence and development of a syndrome of emotional burnout.

The author analyzes emotional burnout as a complex multidimensional dynamic entity that manifests itself specifically and develops over a long time: the chronic state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion. Mathematical data processing and graphical presentation of the results were carried out using the computer software package of statistical software SPSS 11.5. The results of this study confirm the suggested assumptions about the existence of reliable statistically significant relationships between all the symptoms of the phenomenon of "emotional burnout" (with a probability p <0.01), excluding the symptom of "emotional detachment", which has no correlation with the symptoms of "anxiety and depression", "expansion of the sphere of saving of emotions", "Psychosomatic and psycho-vegetative disorders".
