Because of the need for a suitable instrument for the identification of processes that lead to burnout (and internal termination), the inventory "Dynamic Sequences of Behavior" (DSB, Jiménez, Seilinger and Hasibeder, 2010, Hasibeder, 2009, and Seilinger, 2009) was developed. Based on systems theory the present thesis further develops and modifies the DSB in terms of processes that lead to Burnout. The resulting inventory from this modification, titled as "Dynamic Sequences of Behaviour-work specific" (DSB-WS), is presented in this diploma thesis. In the course of developing the DSB-WS, a web-based study was conducted. After a cleanup of the collected data, a sample of 307 persons was used for analysis. The sample was divided randomly into two subsamples (N(1) =148 and N(2) =159): As the basis for a first item-selection, subsample 1 was used to review the test-structure and the item-characteristics. A further item-selection and modification of the scales was the result of a validity-test of the Partial Credit Model (PCM, Masters, 1982). Subsample 2 was used to validate the results of the previously modified scales. As a result, the validity of the PCM for the scales "critical coping-strategies", "perfectionistical strategies" and "search for recovery" can be confirmed, but not the validity of the scale "dysfunctional recovery-strategies". Furthermore, the difficulty-indices of each scale, their reliability (as internal consistency) and convergent validity have been analysed within the overall-sample. The results show largely very good item-characteristics of the modified scales of the DSB-WS. In addition to the obtained results, the present thesis also discusses proposals for complements, prospects for development and the practical significance of the inventory.The appendix can be requested from the thesis adviser, Dr. Paulino Jiménez (email@example.com).
