Changes in anxiety, depression and burnout associated with two mindfulness intervention programs in a sample of university teachers from psychology faculties in different regions of the country.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The university population refers not only to students but also to teachers and administrative staff. Over the years there has been evidence of an increase in emotional disorders and burnout in university teachers, this associated with changes in the country's labor 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 wellness practices, contribute to protect the mental health of the university population. The objective of this research is to identify if there are changes in emotional variables and burnout in a population of university teachers of psychology faculties associated with the use of two different types of mindfulness intervention. For this purpose, the headspace tool and the emotional awareness module of the Unified Protocol will be used. It is expected to find a decrease in the post-intervention scores regardless of the type of intervention.
