DALCIN, Larissa  and  CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra. Burnout syndrome in teachers in Brazil: considerations for a research agenda. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 745-770. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study aimed at raising and summarizing the main results of a systematic review of studies conducted regarding the associated factors to the burnout syndrome in teachers in Brazil. The search covered the BVS, Scielo, Pepsic, and PubMed databases. Sixteen articles were selected to compose the final sample of this study. The results identified associations with the individual socio-demographic and personality variables, job/work related contextual variables, and of burnout outcomes. The results indicate that the production of knowledge is still incipient and unstable in terms of quantity, being this subject mainly investigated by psychology. The majority of the studies were cross-sectional, and used the MBI tool with non-probabilistic samples, and with teachers teaching at more than one level of education. The present study points out to the need for an increase of the research agenda of the burnout in teachers, considering the identified limitations.
