Resumen

GARCIA-ARROYO, José A.  y  OSCA, Amparo. Coping with burnout: analysis of linear, non-linear and interaction relationships. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.3, pp.722-731. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.33.3.279441.

This study analyzes the relationship between action-focused coping, emotion-focused coping and burnout dimensions (emotional exhaustion, cynicism and personal accomplishment) by comparing linear, non-linear and interaction models using quadratic regression analysis. The sample consisted of 202 college professors. Variables such as gender or age were not significant when explaining the relationship between coping and burnout. The results show significant negative relationships between emotion-focused coping and exhaustion and cynicism, and positive relationships with personal accomplishment (linear model). They also show that very low or very high levels of emotion-focused coping diminish personal accomplishment significantly (non-linear model), and that the combined effect of strategies is significant, so that when the use of emotion-focused coping is greater than the use of action-focused coping, exhaustion increases and personal accomplishment decreases. These results support the idea that in order to better understand the flexible and adaptive nature of coping and that it operates in a combined process where one strategy affects the other, the application of non-linear and interaction models are very useful. Finally, we discuss the practical implications for future research and for prevention and intervention programs on burnout.

Palabras clave : Action-focused coping; emotion-focused coping; burnout; linear relationship; non-linear relationship; interaction effect.
