The Relationship between Burnout and Job Satisfaction among Physical Education Teachers: A Multivariate Approach
Koustelios, Athanasios; Tsigilis, Nikolaos
European Physical Education Review, v11 n2 p189-203 Jun 2005
The present study examined the multivariate relationship between job satisfaction and burnout, experienced by Greek physical education school-based teachers. The sample consisted of 175 physical education teachers, from primary and secondary education. The Maslach Burnout Inventory (Maslach and Jackson, 1986) and the Employee Satisfaction Inventory (Koustelios and Bagiatis, 1997) used to assess burnout and job satisfaction respectively. Canonical correlation analysis revealed a negative multivariate relationship between the two constructs (r[subscript c] = 0.61). Canonical loadings indicate that job satisfaction is primarily affected by "job itself" followed by "supervision" and "working conditions", whereas burnout is affected by "personal accomplishment" and "emotional exhaustion". Intrinsic aspects of job satisfaction seemed to correlate stronger to burnout than the extrinsic. (Contains 1 table.)
