The purpose of this study is to determine the levels of burnout and role stresses among direct service providers at centers for independent living in Region V, and investigate the relationship between burnout and role stressors among the population.

The obtained results supported the previous view that CIL management problems including low salaries, high staff turnover, insufficient resources, excessive caseload, unsatisfactory reward, or general lack of control over job tasks and responsibilities that may effect to high burnout.
