BRAUN, Ana Claudia  and  CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra. Burnout Syndrome: comparative study between teacher of special education and regular education. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.1, pp.125-132. ISSN 2175-3539.

In this study we propose to determine whether there is a difference in the rates of the dimensions of BS and Profile 1 and Profile 2 among special education and regular teachers. The sample consisted of 160 teachers, 80 in special education and 80 in regular education. We used a questionnaire to survey demographic and professional data and the Cuestionariopara La Evaluación del Síndrome de Quemarsepor el Trabajo - CESQT to evaluate Burnout Syndrome, as instruments. The results obtained by means of the Student's t test show that special education teachers have higher averages in the dimension of Enthusiasm toward the job, and regular education teachers have higher average rates of Profile 1 and Profile 2 of Burnout Syndrome. Results point to the need for different interventions that consider the peculiarities of the investigated groups.
