Burnout and Borderline n = sample size required
N = number of people in population
P = estimated variance in population, as a decimal
A = precision desired, expressed as a decimal
Z = based on confidence level
R = estimated response rate, as a decimal n = 620
with response rate of 60%, 50% variance, +/- 5% precision, 95% confidence (1.96), 10,000 people in population

n = 1610
with response rate of 60%, 50% variance, +/- 3% precision, 95% confidence (1.96), 10,000 people in population Characterized by:
Fear of Abandonment
Over-dependence on Others
Emotional Instability
Impulsivity Borderline Personality Disorder STEPPS Training Program 20 week treatment program for clients

Hypotheses
There is no change in burnout rates after clinicians participate in a STEPPS training and education program.

There is a decrease in burnout rates after clinicians participate in a STEPPS training and education program. Conclusion
A paired-samples t-test was conducted to compare levels of burnout before and after the STEPPS treatment program. There was a significant difference in the pre-overall scores (M=3.52, SD=.577) and post-overall (M=1.68, SD=.709) scores for burnout; t(99)=20.287, p = 0.000.

A Durbin-Watson was run on the data to determine if the data was being influenced by another variable. All values were between 2.011 and 2.215, suggesting that there was no autocorrelation.

These results suggest that the STEPPS treatment does have an effect on burnout. Specifically, the results suggest that after participating in the STEPPS treatment program, counselor burnout decreases. Problem Statement
The problem is little systematic research has been done focusing on counselor burnout in relation to working with clients with BPD.

Purpose Statement
The purpose of this pre-test/post-test study with control examines the use of a training program, STEPPS, to reduce burnout rates among clinicians who treat individuals with BPD. Limitations
Factors of Burnout - personal accomplishment
Burnout "unethical" - skew results
Skewed sample

Future Research
Control Group
More varied sample
Inpatient and Outpatient
Personal Accomplishment
Comparative measures
DSM-V The high t-statistic suggests that the variables are serially correlated with one another, or that there is another influence on the variable.

This suggests the need for a test such as Durbin-Watson, which tests to see if the values are autocorrelated. References American Psychiatric Association. (2000). Borderline Personality Disorder.

STEPPS training has been used to educate clinicians and improve their attitudes towards Borderline Personality Disorder The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (2009), in their clinical guideline for diagnosis and management of Borderline Personality Disorder, stated the need for more training on diagnosis and management of Borderline Personality Disorder.

Perseius, Kaver, Ekdahl, Asberg, and Samuelson (2009) found that burnout played a large role in therapy and clinician interactions with clients with Borderline Personality Disorder.
They believe a burnout should be assessed, and studies should try and find a way to improve burnout in relation to Borderline Personality Disorder. Methods
Stratified Random Sampling of clinicians across the United States

Administer the MBI-HSS before and 6 months after attending a STEPPS training workshop at a national conference.

Inclusion requirements:
At least 5 years in the field
30 or more clients
