A study of burnout among university teachers in relation to their personality with reference to their experience
Author(s): Dr. Sapna
Abstract: Burnout is a prolonged response to chronic emotional and interpersonal stressors on the job. The past 25 years of research has established the complexity of the construct, and places the individual stress experience within a larger organizational context of people's relation to their work. Recently, the work on burnout has expanded internationally and has led to new conceptual models. The focus on engagement, the positive antithesis of burnout, promises to yield new perspectives on interventions to alleviate burnout. The social focus of burnout, the solid research basis concerning the syndrome, and its specific ties to the work domain make a distinct and valuable contribution to people's health, well-being and job. This study attempted to pin point the factors which contribute to the high rate of burnout among teachers of university and its relationship with personality. (Eysenk, H.J Mannual).
