Based on a story telling methodology used in theatre our interviewer led the audience through the experience of two of our colleagues that faced a burnout. Starting with the period before the burnout, when everything was still fine, the audience got a feeling of the personalities and activities of our colleagues and relate this to their own lives. The story continued with the moment of “collapse”, the divergent phase, the crucial turn and recovery. During every phase, background from a scientific perspective was giving by an expert and the audience felt free to ask everything they wanted to know. The intimate setting and the openness of both our colleagues, the interviewer, expert and the audience made it an evening that will be remembered.
