The study sought to investigate 1) the relationship between work – family conflict (WFC) and the burnout, 2) the relationship between family – work (FWC) conflict and the burnout and 3) the mediating role of the general and specific self – efficacy (related to teachers tasks). Participants were 291 teachers. As predicted by the Job Demands-Resources model high, WFC and FWC correlated with the high job burnout. High levels of burnout correlated with low self-efficacy. Only the effect of FWC on job burnout was mediated by general and specific self-efficacy beliefs. Results partly support the Job Demands-Resources model and provide further insight into processes leading to the job burnout.
