Overview: Individuals in a wide range of occupations, including students, athletes, and the general population, have reported experiencing burnout (Dubuc-Charbonneau & Durand-Bush, 2015; Halbesleben, Osburn, & Mumford, 2006; Maslach, 2003; Salmela-Aro, Näätänen, & Nurmi, 2004). Self-Determination Theory (SDT) is often viewed as the foundation for a plausible explanation of burnout (Cresswell & Eklund, 2005; Lonsdale, Hodge, & Rose, 2009). SDT identifies the satisfaction of basic psychological needs results in optimal human functioning, social development, and personal well-being (Ryan & Deci, 2000). The needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness are regarded as not only essential, but also universal among humans (Ryan & Deci, 2000).
