DE FRANCISCO, C.; GARCES DE LOS FAYOS, E.J.  and  ARCE, C.. Burnout in athletes: prevalence of the syndrome through two measures. CPD [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp.29-38. ISSN 1989-5879.

This work has studied the prevalence of the burnout syndrome in a sample of 442 athletes and the relationship between the syndrome, or some of its dimensions, and some significant variables in the field of sport (athletes gender, age, competitive level, and volume of training). Two instruments of measurement of burnout in athletes, the Burnout Inventory in Athletes (Inventario de Burnout en Deportistas-Revisado, IBD-R) and the Athlete Burnout Questionnaire (ABQ) have been applied. For data analysis (descriptive statistics, frequencies distribution, t test and analysis of variance) we used the statistical package SPSS. Similar percentages have been obtained on the prevalence of the syndrome with both questionnaires. About 4% of the athletes suffer from the syndrome, and there are certain differences in relation to gender, competitive level and volume of training. Results make us think about the relevance of its prevalence in sport context and some future strategies for its prevention.

Keywords : Burnout; athletes; prevalence; IBD-R; ABQ.
