Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Several international studies have been conducted on student burnout. To contribute to the clinical examination as well as research on the mental health of students, the MBI-SS (Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey) has been validated and used in different countries but not in French.

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study is to examine the validity of the 3-dimensional model of the French version of the MBI-SS, which is characterized by emotional "Emotional Exhaustion" (EE); "Cynicism" (CY); and low scores in "Academic Efficacy" (AE).

METHOD:

A total of 667 university students were questioned to study the 3-dimensional structure of the French translation of the MBI-SS.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

The results validate the 3-dimensional structure of the MBI-SS and indicate satisfactory psychometric values. It is concluded that the MBI-SS can be used to assess burnout in French students.

KEYWORDS:
