BARROSO, Sabrina Martins. Burden and Satisfaction with Sourse: Is There an Indirect Effect of the Emotional Factors of University Students?. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.4, pp. 426-434. ISSN 1677-0471.

The present study evaluated the relationship between the perception of university burden and satisfaction with undergraduate courses when analyzed independently or mediated by the depressive symptoms, loneliness and resilience of students. Study participants were 317 undergraduate students, who responded to the following instruments: Patients Health Questionnaire, Brazilian Loneliness Scale and Brief Scale of Resilience. There was a relationship between burden and satisfaction with undergraduate courses when considered independently (rho = -0.13), however, when the mediation of the emotional factors (loneliness, depression or resilience) was analyzed the burden was no longer significant. It was concluded that the influence of burden on student satisfaction can mask the indirect effects of other emotional factors.

Keywords : burden; satisfaction; students; university; emotional aspects.
