Methods: The data collected from the demographic data form, Maslach Burnout Inventory and self-efficacy rating scale. Totally 124 of professionals, 88 (70.96%) females and 36 (29.03%) males, participated in the study. Of these 68 (54.83%) were teachers, 32 (25.8%) physiotherapists, and 24 (19.35%) psychologists. Results: The average age of the participants was 33.91±12.24 and their average working year was 11.47±11.97 years. The emotional burnout section scores of Maslach Burnout Inventory were determined as 11.62±5.38, the desensitization as 2.55±2.51 and personal success scores as 23.19±3.65. High levels of burnout were seen in the fields of emotional burnout and desensitization, and low burnout was detected in personal success. Correlations were observed between burnout levels, and age (r=-0.19, p=0.03), total working years (r=-0.23, p=0.01) and vocational problems (r=-0.31, p<0.001).
