Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Burnout syndrome (BOS) can be defined as a chronic work strain characterized by three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization (or cynicism), reduced professional effectiveness. BOS typically strikes the helping professions like the teachers. OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study are: 1) clarify the concept of BOS, as currently configured in the international scientific literature; 2) analyze the psychosocial risk factors in teachers; 3) develop a methodology for the assessment and prevention of the risk of BOS in the teachers. METHODS: The literature review followed some of the PRISMA guidelines criteria. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: The results of the study highlight BOS as a risk factor specific and distinct from labor-related stress. A strategy called VA.RI.B.O is proposed (Burn-Out Recognition) for teachers.
