An examination of the relationships between adverse childhood experiences, personality traits, and job-related burnout in early childhood educators


This study explored the relationship between adverse childhood experiences, personality, and job-related burnout, and whether personality mediates between adverse childhood experiences and job-related burnout. Participants included 207 early childhood educators from the U.S. Results revealed a significant, positive correlation between adverse childhood experiences, and neuroticism and openness. Neuroticism and openness were found to mediate between adverse childhood experiences and burnout. Understanding this relationship has implications for the design of supportive infrastructures and professional development initiatives. (author abstract)
