Level of Burnout in Employed and Unemployed University Students
MetadataShow full item record
Burnout syndrome is a phenomenon which lacks a universal definition due to researchers holding different opinions on what exactly burnout is. However many agree that burnout consists of three dimensions which are; emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, and reduced personal accomplishment. The cause of burnout appears to be workplace stressors which lead to symptoms and burnout developing in stages. There are numerous suggestions for the order of each stage yet Freudenberger and North (1992) state that the order and duration of each stage is dependent on each individual. During the early development and research into burnout syndrome it was proposed that only professionals within the human services experienced burnout. Yet over the years it has been found that, despite not being classed as a job, students also experience burnout this became known as academic burnout. Therefore if those within work and education experience burnout then it is proposed that those who are students and employed are more likely to report higher levels of burnout dimensions than students who are unemployed. As a result this study required participants from a South Wales university to complete the Maslach Burnout Inventory – General Survey (Schaufeli, Leiter,Maslach, & Jackson, 1996). The results were then analysed using three two-way ANOVAs. The results showed that there were no correlations between the employed and unemployed students. However the results did suggest that all students are experiencing the three dimensions of burnout to some degree once again highlighting the prevalence of this phenomenon amongst students.
