Project: Research Project

Project Details


The university population not only refers to students but also to teachers and administrators.

Over the years, there has been an increase in emotional disorders and burnout in university teachers, this associated with changes in the country's work characteristics, new technologies and of course the pandemic.

One way to reduce these rates is to create evidence-based prevention strategies that, through training in emotional regulation skills, recognition of risk factors and well-being practices, contribute to protecting the mental health of the university population.

The objective of this research is to identify if there are changes in emotional and burnout variables in a population of university professors from psychology schools associated with the use of two different types of mindfulness intervention. For this, the headspace tool and the emotional awareness module of the Unified Protocol will be used.

It is expected to find a decrease in post-intervention scores.
regardless of the type of intervention.
