2011 The Japanese Journal of Personality  
The relation between teachers' help-seeking preferences and burnout was examined in 151 Japanese elementary school teachers, who filled out the Maslach Burnout Inventory and a questionnaire about help-seeking preferences. The results suggested that young teachers need easy, acceptable support from other teachers. To reduce burnout symptoms, the elementary school administration should encourage and facilitate teachers to accept help from others without reluctance.
