FIGUEIREDO-FERRAZ, Hugo; GIL-MONTE, Pedro R.  e  GRAU-ALBEROLA, Ester. Prevalence of Burnout Syndrome in Portuguese teachers. Aletheia [online]. 2009, n.29, pp. 6-15. ISSN 1413-0394.

The aim of the present study was to analyse the prevalence of the Burnout Syndrome among Portuguese teachers. The sample was composed by 211 teachers taken from several Portuguese schools, 150 (71.10%) females and 61 (28.90%) males. In order to assess the Burnout levels we employed the “Spanish Burnout Inventory” in its Portuguese version for education professionals (CESQT-PE). The prevalence was analysed through the points of reference in the response frequency scale. Thus, it was found that 30 (14.20%) out of the 211 participants showed high levels of Burnout. Furthermore, 4 (1.90%) participants showed the most severe Burnout levels since they got high mean results in all 15 items that compose the scales named above, as well as high feelings of guilt.
