Abstract

Burnout is a work-related syndrome that stems from an individual's perception of the instability between demands and resources over a long period of time. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between professional burnout and occupational stress due to intra & interpersonal interactions of teachers working at the state universities of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Rating Scales were administered on a sample of 955 teachers from 9 universities chosen by using Simple Random Sampling Technique. The statistical techniques employed were percentage, mean, SD, mean ± 1SD, and also correlations computed to analyze the obtained data. The results of the study shows that around 86% and 62.09% of university teachers are experiencing moderate and high levels of professional burnout and occupational stress respectively due to intra & interpersonal interactions. Correlation studies also revealed a significant positive relationship between professional burnout and occupational stress due to intra & interpersonal interactions. It is observed that job stress and burnout has multiple causes, and so as to have multiple solutions. Conflict, frustration, stress and burnout are often caused by interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships at the workplace.
