The prevalence of burnout occurring in universities are increasing owing to the evolving nature of an academician’s job scope becoming more challenging and strenuous, as recent research on academicians stress indicates (Akgemci et al. 2013; Eker & Anbar, 2008; Salami, 2011; Toker, 2011; Winefield, 2003). Nevertheless, there remains a lack of exploration when it comes to testing the association between burnout and resilience involving academicians of universities, which have resulted in a lack of literature in the aforementioned context. Despite the growing literature on resilience at present, it has had little impact so far in the field of educational psychology, although different authors have suggested that over the years with such valuable
Resilience is a term that is often applied to those who have faced hardship and viewed the experience in a positive light as an opportunity to grow and change for the better (Wagnild & Collins, 2009). The definition however seems to vary from place to place. Ungar et al. (2008) stated “definitions of resilience are ambiguous when viewed across cultures" (p.174) which is why the understanding of resilience may be difficult to capture (as cited in Windle, Bennett & Noyes, 2011). Although the literature agrees on several common themes about resilience there are many varying opinions on how to define the concept or the attributing factors. Earvolino-Ramirez (2007) and
The purpose of this study was to examine stress and burnout in athletic training students. The data gathered in this study may assist the researcher in determining if there is a strategy that assists the athletic training students deal with stress and burnout. Moreover, if there are statistical differences between the four Athletic Training Student Burnout Inventories (ATSBI) that the participants took, then the subsequent data analysis may reveal stress reducing strategies or applications beneficial for athletic training students. Thus, descriptive analysis information collected from the athletic training students may indicate strategies that are beneficial for athletic training students.
While the position of female officers has progressed, there remain barriers that negatively affect the number of women entering or remaining in the police force. As the number of female officers decreases, the need for further research must increase to meet the needs of this population. There is a lack of current research on the poor retention of female officers, as well as studies that look solely at women. This study represents a focused interest in the poor retention of female officers and seeks to predict the extent of the impact of job burnout by isolating specific variables that have been correlated to burnout among male officers. If the factors that are associated with job burnout are researched, then the findings of these constructs
One of the warrants stated by the authors is that all previous study on the subject has focused on similar claims of why burnout occurs. The authors then list the previous claims for why burnout occurs in this employment sector. This makes it very clear to the reader the
Resilience has been topic that we have learned and are discussing in my English class. When you can overcome hardships faster and easier when you are more resilient person. We have been analyzing an article called “The Science of Bouncing Back” by Mandy Oaklander. Oaklander discusses methods of many people on their experience, becoming a more resilient person. People respond to emotion and hardships in their life differently, and people with more struggles overcome it more gradually, and Mandy Oaklander made me consider the possibilities resilience has, and can offer in everyday life.
Burnout among graduate students can lead to emotional exhaustion and depersonalization. Students might not perform to the best of their abilities, and experience a decline in their sense of personal accomplishments (Maslach, Leiter, and Jackson, 2012). It can be difficult for them to rationalize that their feelings are a result of stress and high demands, something that can trigger feelings of insecurity and anxiety. The lack of self-esteem can be difficult to rebuild, unless the student is provided with adequate support from t their environment.
Burnout affects people both personally and professionally regardless of occupation. In recent years the conception of burnout has been modified, and above all it has begun to be treated as a phenomenon which affects members of many professions not only those of the human service professions, due to burnout is described as a crisis in one’s relationship with work in general (Chirkowska-Smolak & Kleka, 2011). Academicians routinely spend many tiring hours reading, writing, lecturing, and solving countless problems that are sustained by their students and institutions. This level of involvement can be emotionally draining and coupled with working environments that are often highly stressful has the potential to lead to burnout (Maslach et. al, 2001). This emotional involvement is the primary reason of the increasing rate of burnout among academic staff in an educational institution depending on the country’s working conditions (Akgemci et al., 2013). Feelings of emotional exhaustion are a key aspect of the burnout syndrome.
Resilience has been defined at least by three ways (Lepore & Revenson, 2006) that include: recovery, resistance and reconfiguration. An element of resilience is hardiness refers to resistance to change in following adversity and the commitment for future stable emotional responses to obtain a sense of achievement given similar traumatic events (Benight & Bandura, 2004). Another component of resilience is self-esteem. High self-esteem is associated with high confidence, tools and skills for coping with the changes. A third component is suppressed overall response tendency to avoid thoughts, unpleasant emotions and memories associated with the traumatic event. The first two components – hardiness and self-esteem are related to cognitive processes. In contrast, the third component – a suppressed response – is related to the limbic system associated with emotions (Bonanno, 2005). If so, the quality of resilience refers to a cognitive-emotional trait before experiencing trauma,
Previous studies have been conducted that investigated the relationship of various factors with stress and burnout in the field of school counseling (Wilkerson & Bellini, 2006; Wilkerson, 2009). However, there is a gap in literature when it comes to examining role stress in school counseling (Culbreth, Scarborough,
Nevertheless, it should not be ignored that repeated exposure to distressing situations may not always result in stronger character. According to researcher Dr. Cohen -Silver, mental resilience is somewhat like exercising the body: “It cannot be develop without exercise and it breaks down when overworked. (You) cannot minimize in any way the pain of such events when you’re going through them. But it does appear that if you’ve had several such experiences but not too many, you can learn something.” As we face the challenges that come our way, we gain the ability to successfully endure whatever else there is in store. On the flipside, if these challenges become increasingly ubiquitous and beyond the capacity of what you can handle, your ability
Any work environment can have stressful aspects that can negatively affect the employees’ performance and may lead to burnout. Oftentimes when employees are stressed or burnout their commitment at the job may begin to weaken and they may lose satisfaction. Many organizations have recognized that workers burnout is the result of aggravated chronic work stressors and embodied by enervation and inefficacy. This author will discuss the impact of stress and worker burnout on organizations. Moreover, this author will consider the implication of stress and worker burnout on the employee, as well as the short- and long-term productivity of a business.
By recognizing that burnout is a serious problem that impacts an organization’s viability, an assembly of staff nurses, nursing supervisors, human resource staff, social services, nurse administrators, and a physician champion will be arranged to construct mission, objectives and strategies to help ameliorate the issues at hand. Researching literature on nursing burnout is essential so that the members of the task force has a solid grasp on potential underlying hardships contributing to nursing burnout within the facility as well as the financial effects on the organization. Furthermore, in order to determine a solution, the nurse’s work environment should be assessed (Nedd, 2006) and measured using the 26-item Brisbane Practice Environment Measure (B-PEM) (Flint, Farrugia, Courtney, & Webster, 2010). The B-PEM instrument was developed to measure nursing satisfaction within the work environment and the perceived facilities inadequacies (Flint et al. 2010; Hayes et al., 2014; Nedd, 2006). Next, the Conditions of Work Effectiveness - Questionnaire-II (CWEQ-II) will also be utilized to measure the nurses’ perceived access to the four job related empowerment structures: opportunity, information, support, and resources will be administered (Laschinger et al., 2003). Then nursing burnout will be assessed and analyzed by using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) which is a widely used instrument to assess burnout and is considered the gold standard due to its established
In fact, research reveals that school teachers experience of some highest levels of stress among working professionals (citation). When it comes to the reality of the stress pandemic, it is not the reaction itself that is the problem. Rather, it is the way we deal with stress that determines the effects of stress on our mind and body. In fact, it is stated in Feldman (2009), “our attempts to overcome stress may produce biological and physiological responses that result in health problems” (p. 417). Therefore, it is always prudent to try to find ways to deal with stress effectively before it takes an irreversible toll on us. Nonetheless, the fact remains that work stress and mental health are directly intertwined.
