The aim of this paper is to provide a first contribution to the Italian validation of the Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI; Kristensen et al., 2005). According to the Authors of the CBI, there are several reasons to criticize the Maslach Burnout Inventory. Authors have proposed a new instrument to measure burnout which is based on two key issues: first burnout is defined solely in terms of fatigue and exhaustion, and second it is linked to specific life spheres. Three life spheres are proposed, each measured by a specific scale: personal burnout, work-related burnout, and client burnout. The results of a survey involving a group of teachers (N = 348) provided support for a good internal consistency of the three scales, which also showed the expected temporal stability at the six-month follow up. The factor structure of the CBI is sufficiently well described by the three factors postulated. The three scales showed the expected pattern of correlations with a number of variables that research has shown to be related to burnout, including symptoms of stress, neuroticism and job satisfaction. Overall, the results provide indications of validity and reliability of the Italian version of the CBI.
