The Burn-Out Syndrome in the Day Care Setting
Maslach, Christina; Pines, Ayala
Child Care Quarterly, 6, 2, 100-13, Sum 77
Results of a study of personal job-stress factors among day care center personnel focus on impact of staff-child ratio, working hours, time out, staff meetings and program structure. Recommended institutional changes for prevention of staff "burn-out" involve reduction in amount of direct staff-child contact, development of social-professional support systems and training in interpersonal skills.
