CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra and CAMARA, Sheila Gonçalves. Predictors of Burnout Syndrome in teachers. Psicol. Esc. Educ. (Impr.) [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.1, pp. 101-110. ISSN 1413-8557. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572007000100010.
The aim of this study was to identify the predictors for the Burnout Syndrome in 563 teachers from private educational institutions of the Porto Alegre's metropolitan area. A specific questionnaire was developed in order to evaluate demographic and professional variables. The Maslach Burnout Inventory, the Job Diagnostic Survey and the Questionnaire of Satisfaction were also used. Results showed a predominance of variables associated to the work enviroment in the explicative model of burnout for both groups, although with a different configuration in each group.
