Abstracts
Burnout is frequently mentioned as a problem in the mental health field. As a type of prolonged response to chronic job-related stressors, has a special significance in health care where staff experience both psychological-emotional and physical stress. The aim of the paper was to determine the level of stress in professionals working in psychiatric hospital, as well as to explore possible differences in stress level regarding the different characteristic of participants as sex, level of education, marital status, working hours etc. The Burnout Clinical Subtypes Questionnaire was used. Study was conducted from July to December 2014, and from April to May 2015. The sample of 141 participants who work in mental health profession consists of 39.9% male and 68.1% female, average age of 38.98 years. Overall results show that participants have lower scores on all subscales. The results showed that there is moderate burnout experience in the sense that participants feel overload when they try to maximize their reward by taking on a volume and pace of work that become excessive. This questionnaire can be a very useful instrument for future evaluation and designing interventions and different treatment strategies for subtypes of burnout.
