The object of our research is centred around burnout in nurses confronted by the successive and repeated deaths of patients in their care. We propose to study the theoretical links between burnout, coping and alexithymie.

The salient clinical features of alexithymia include difficulties recognizing and verbalizing feelings, endless description of physical symptoms instead of emotions, concrete speech and thougth closely tied to external events, paucity of fantasy life...
