Yıldız Akyol, Elvan
The present study was aimed at investigating to what extent mindfulness of senior students was predicted by their burnout levels. 449 senior students (349 female, 100 male) studying at the Education Faculty of Middle East Technical University (215 students) and Gazi University (234 students) participated in this study. Participants were chosen by convenience sampling method. The data was collected through a demographic data form, Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale and Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Scale. Additionally, reliability studies were conducted for the scales used for the sample of the present study. Descriptive and inferential statistics, correlation, basic and hierarchical regression analysis, were utilized by SPSS 22. The results of the study indicated that there was a negative significant relationship between mindfulness and burnout of senior students. In addition to this, overall burnout scores of the senior students was found as a significant predictor of their mindfulness levels. Moreover, while the exhaustion and efficacy sub dimensions of burnout were found as significant predictors of mindfulness, the cynicism sub dimensions of burnout did not predict mindfulness level of the senior students significantly.
