This study investigated the cross-cultural validation of the Chinese translation of the Counselor Burnout Inventory (CBI) with a sample of school counselors in Hong Kong. Specifically, this study examined the CBI's factor structure using confirmatory factor analysis and calculated the effect size, to compare burnout scores among the counselors of 4 countries (Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and the United States). Results indicated that a 5-factor model was the most appropriate to accommodate the data. In addition, the results showed that the levels of Hong Kong counselors' burnout were similar to those of U.S. counselors, but differed from counselors in Japan and South Korea. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
