Question
Asked 15th Jan, 2015

Can anyone suggest any definitive texts on burnout in teachers?

I guess it's all in the title really...
I'm currently lookin in detail at Fried by Borysenko, and Understanding and PReventing Teacher Burnout by Vandenberghe and Huberman. I feel I should include some of Maslach's work and some of Freudenberger as the "masters" of the field, but they've both published lots and I'm trying to isolate key texts.

Hi Oli,
Recently in 2014, Brown published on the matter:
Brown, C. M. (2014). The impact of burnout on teachers' perceived efficacy within the middle school setting (Doctoral dissertation, CAPELLA UNIVERSITY).
ISO 690.
Also, but in Spanish, Velázquez et.al in 2014 published the results of an empirical study:
Velázquez, R. A., García, C. R., Díaz, J. S., Adrián, J., Rodríguez, O., & Ávila, S. M. (2014). ESTRÉS Y BURNOUT EN DOCENTES DE EDUCACIÓN MEDIA SUPERIOR. Revista Electrónica Medicina, Salud y Sociedad, 4(2).
ISO 690
I send you the HTML version of the latter,
Hope it helps,
Laura

Thank you. I've translated the one you sent me (my Spanish is about as good as my Mongolian), The other I'm hunting for - I'm sure my Uni gives me access to where it is but it's just giving me the sample.

Thank you Mohsen. There are many texts about it in English as well (Google translator couldn't handle Persian unfortunately), but I am looking specifically for texts which are considered core or definitive.
thanks

This is an aside.
I suggest all teachers who have an opportunity to go and work in another country, such as through the JET Programme in Japan, so that you could come back with insight and refreshed after immersing yourself in a team-teaching situation in another country for a year or two.
Seeing your own land through the eyes of other cultures is motivating, but even better is spending a year or so constantly comparing and contrasting the lives of others is an even deeper way to come back renewed, inspired and even changed.

There are naturally loads of information in Google Scholar--but I note that they are mostly 15 to 25 years old.  For example,

Abstract 1. Despite much empirical research linking the construct of teacher burnout to other

By definitive article, are we referring to which dimensions exactly? in types of schools, in fields, in age groups? in countries or regions?

I would recommend the work of my colleague, Doris Santoro, who argues that we should question the language of 'burnout,' and instead explore the "demoralization" of teachers. See examples of her work here: "Teaching’s Conscientious Objectors: Principled Leavers of High-Poverty Schools" Teachers College Record (2011) and "Good Teaching in Difficult Times: Demoralization in the Pursuit of Good Work," American Journal of Education (2011). Hope this helps!
