Joanna Lipowska

Abstract

The study aimed to identify motivational factors that cause differences in burnout process. It was assumed that autonomous motivation and enhancing factors: achievement motivation, causality orientation, occupational and personal values and basic psychological needs satisfaction, can play a preventive/banishing role against burnout. The orphanages pedagogic staff has been tested and interviewed in a research, because of a high risk of burnout in the occupation. The research has been a longitudinal study. In stage 1 (T1, T2) a group of 105 subjects has been tested and in stage 2, after 9-10 months (T3) - 78 subjects. Eight interviews have been conducted on the theme of: effective actions undertaken to maintain and restore motivation and methods of preventing/treating job burnout. The theoretical basis for the research were: burnout theory by C. Maslach and S. Jackson, self-determination theory by E, Deci & R Ryan and A. Elliot concept of achievement motivation. The research proved that salient factors preventing/treating burnout are: autonomous motivation, satisfaction of basic psychological needs (autonomy, competence, relatedness), and such values as: ability utilization, personal development, social interactions, social relations. Type of causality orientation or achievement motivation are irrelevant for job burnout. Interviews underline the role of personal growth for preventing burnout.
