Abstract: Burnout is a chronic syndrome characterized by emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and reduced efficacy that has long-term ill effects for individuals, organizations, families, and health-care systems. Job engagement is considered to be the positive opposite of the burnout experience, and it is conceptualized by energy, involvement with work, and efficacy. The presence of supervisor supporthas been shown to mitigate against the development of burnout more than collegial and non-work forms of social support across occupations, and it is believed to do this as a result of the supervisor’s influence over work-related demands and resources. Using a sample of 213 university professors, this study proposed that individual differences in attachment orientations would predictburnout and job engagement, and that supervisor support would moderate theserelationships. Regression analyses identified anxious attachment and supervisorsupport as predictors of burnout and job engagement in this study. However, collegial support was a stronger predictor of these outcomes. The hypothesis that supervisor support would moderate the relationship between attachment and burnout was not supported.
