Abstract

COLINO, Natalia  and  PEREZ DE LEON, Pablo. BURNOUT SYNDROME IN A GROUP OF SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS IN MONTEVIDEO. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.1, pp.27-41. ISSN 1688-4221.

This article examines the incidence of the burnout syndrome among Uruguayan teachers. A sample of 279 secondary school teachers, who work in public schools in Montevideo, completed questionnaires about: burnout syndrome, personality, life events, areas of working life, turnover intentions and sociodemographic data. The results show that 4.2% of the teachers surveyed had elevated levels of burnout syndrome and 42% obtained high values in at least one dimension of the syndrome. The characteristics displayed by the educators who scored higher on the scale of burnout syndrome are the following: the female gender, high number of weekly hours of work, little seniority in the profession, lack of educational training and work in up to two schools. The job-person fit, the type A behavior, stressful life events and turnover intentions correlated significantly with burnout syndrome

Keywords : burnout syndrome; teachers; type A personality; life events; turnover intention.
