Stress and wellbeing among professionals working with people with neurodevelopmental disorders. Review and intervention perspectives


Supporting individuals with NDD is extremely demanding, with significant exposure to
critical contexts and events, and painful ongoing experiences. Stress and burnout condition
is a main concern with growing interest in research, despite the lack of consensus on
theoretical explanatory models and modification standards.
The paper provides an up-to-date review of risk factors and involved processes, and presents
evidence-based procedures and protocols to implement effective preventive actions
addressing both organizational and individual factors. The aim is to offer a global understanding
of the subject and offer examples of practical plans to increase the impact on
the quality of life of clients and staff members.
