Prevalence of Burnout Syndrome of Greek Child Care Workers and Kindergarten Teachers
Rentzou, Konstantina
Education 3-13, v43 n3 p249-262 2015
The present study, employing the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey, aims to compare and explore possible differences to the levels of burnout reported by the two main professional groups working in the early childhood education and care sector in Greece, that is kindergarten teachers and childcare workers. The correlation between the levels of burnout reported and participants' demographic data were also examined. Research data revealed that kindergarten teachers experience slightly more feelings of emotional exhaustion, whereas childcare workers experience more feelings of depersonalisation. Furthermore, correlation analysis indicated that subscales predict one another whereas only personal accomplishment subscale had been found to be correlated with participants' demographic data. Suggestions for future research are formulated.
