Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Burnout as a Public Health Problem and Its Approach from Prevention
When we think of stress, we immediately associate it with a lack of availability of appropriate personal and social resources to meet challenges. The exhaustion of resources to fulfil the work activity can increase the sensation of stress, until the well-known burnout syndrome is caused. This syndrome has recently been classed as a public health problem, and new theoretical approaches have arisen arguing for the study of variables, which insofar as they are related to burnout, can take on a protective role against the events triggering the syndrome.
Self-efficacy, understood as the perception of competence to solve different stressful situations, has also been considered as a moderating variable of stress, and is protective against exhaustion at work. On the other hand, burnout and job satisfaction are considered to represent different emotional responses to work, although they are closely related. Based on these findings, and being convinced that self-efficacy can reduce the negative consequences of chronic stress, there is a need to expand the research focused on the role that these factors play in the development of burnout syndrome and its maintenance, or also, why not, in its prevention and/or treatment.
This Special Issue is intended to provide greater visibility to the empirical study of the relationships between the variables, directly or indirectly, involved in the development or timing of worker burnout.
Priority will be given to papers presenting the results of data collection and statistical analysis, and theoretical reviews framed within a systematic methodology or meta-analysis, which are outstanding because of the relevance of their results, will also be considered. Above all, those that present an up-to-date methodological framework, which can be considered a starting point for future lines of research, will be considered, specifically the following: proposal of theoretical models, development of evaluation instruments, or design of intervention programs.
