Parent Burnout: Validation of the Maslach Burnout Inventory with a Sample of Mothers.
Pelsma, Dennis M.; And Others
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v22 n2 p81-87 Jul 1989
Examined validity of Maslach Burnout Inventory for assessing parenting burnout among nonworking mothers (N=121) of young children. Found two of three dimensions consistent with original factor structure. Findings suggest that parenting burnout may differ from occupational burnout in depersonalization responses, yet similarities exist in feelings of lack of personal accomplishment and reports of emotional exhaustion.
