This paper arises as a result of the concern for the therapist as a person and everything that is reactivated in his relationship with patients and colleagues. The authors propose a possible way to work with these contents that are updated and have straight impact on their mental health. The Multifamily Psychoanalysis approach offers an opportunity for the psycho-emotional growth of the operator and the resolution of the unresolved history; the possibility of going through a true therapeutic process. This paper provides statistical data about stress and burn-out that show how the working atmosphere affects the development of institutions, With an economic impact in terms of social, institutional and individual spending. The paper proposes the Multifamily Psychoanalysis Groups as a possible solution to this problem, as they bring health to the framework that unfolds in the workplace, in the relationship with others, and to make prevention respect to psychosocial risks, with an intervention for the reduction of the economic expenditure related to the effects of stress and burn-out, as well as the improvement of mental health operators and a better relationship of care for patients and their families.

Keywords: Interdependence, burn-out, psycho-social risks, Multifamily Psychoanalysis Groups, mental health.
