Mandel School’s Jennifer King shares warning signs of burnout

TIME MagazineJennifer King, assistant professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and assistant director of the Center on Trauma and Adversity, offered tips on paying more attention to warning signs of burnout. “The problem is, we become conditioned early on to stop listening to our bodies,” she said. “A cascade of changes happen in the body when the stress response is activated in a sustained way.
