Tested the spurning-burnout hypothesis in 79 in-service teachers who completed a questionnaire assessing spurning, social support, and burnout. The extent to which social support could buffer the adverse effects of spurning on burnout was also examined. Results replicated the effects of spurning found by S. Mickler and S. Rosen (unpublished manuscript). Ss who were more spurned experienced greater burnout than did those who were less spurned. Only support from one's job supervisor evidenced buffering effects.
