Síndrome de Burnout, Amas de casa, Vulnerabilidad y trabajo
Burnout Syndrome in housewives can affect the health and quality of life of this population; this can generate diseases and family dysfunction. This article presents the results of an investigation whose aim was to identify and describe the presence of the Burnout Syndrome in housewives. Also was established the relationship between the socio-cultural level, marital status and age with the appearance of the Burnout in housewives who sit in the neighborhood Rodrigo de Bastidas in the city of Santa Marta. This study developed, from the application to 203 housewives who were selected randomly, of Burnout questionnaire for housewives and one tab socio-demographic and the results were compared. These showed that 11.3% were affected by the syndrome. The ages ranged between 41 and 60 years and they exerted housework for one to thirty years. The majority was married or in common-law union and they showed a higher level of emotional exhaustion; this can be attributed to the double role: mothers and workers. Likewise a significant group belonged to nuclear or extensive families; these could therefore experience greater family stressors.
