The results of the research emphasized that emotional burnout syndrome is a phenomenon that leads to negative changes in the personality structure, contributing to a decrease in professional and social activity. The study of issues related to emotional burnout is an important direction in the field of studying the phenomenon of social apathy and anomie. A significant role in the formation of the syndrome of emotional burnout is played by the individual characteristics of people, as well as the nature of social activity. Thus, it can be said that emotional burnout is the result of a mismatch between individualism and social norms perception which leads to increase of normlessness, meaninglessness and social isolation.
