The investigation concern two phases: a qualitative one that includes the recopila-tion of information (groupal and individual interviews). And another quantitative one that includes the construction of a Psychographics Inventory, the validation of the instrument and the application of the Maslach Burnout Inventory, to explore if there is any relation between Burnout syndrome and the teacher's psychographics profiles.
