The AdS 5 non-Abelian T-dual of Klebanov-Witten as a \( \mathcal{N}=1 \) linear quiver from M5-branes

In this paper we study an AdS5 solution constructed using non-Abelian T-duality, acting on the Klebanov-Witten background. We show that this is dual to a linear quiver with two tails of gauge groups of increasing rank. The field theory dynamics arises from a D4-NS5-NS5’ brane set-up, generalizing the constructions discussed by Bah and Bobev. These realize \( \mathcal{N}=1 \) quiver ...

Three-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) linear quivers and non-Abelian T-duals

In this paper we construct a new Type IIB background with an AdS 4 factor that preserves \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) Supersymmetry. This solution is obtained using a non-Abelian T-duality transformation on the Type IIA reduction of the AdS 4 × S 7 background. We interpret our configuration as a patch of a more general background with localised sources, dual to the renormalisation fixed ...

A \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) supersymmetric AdS4 solution in M-theory with purely magnetic flux

We find a new \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) AdS 4 solution in M-theory supported by purely magnetic flux via a sequence of abelian and non-abelian T-dualities. This provides the second known example in this class besides the uplift of the Pernici and Sezgin solution to 7d gauged supergravity constructed in the eighties. We compute the free energy of the solution, and show that it scales as N ...

New AdS 3 × S 2 T-duals with \( \mathcal{N}=\left(0,4\right) \) supersymmetry

It is well known that Hopf-fibre T-duality and uplift takes the D1-D5 near-horizon into a class of AdS 3 × S 2 geometries in 11D where the internal space is a Calabi-Yau three-fold. Moreover, supersymmetry dictates that Calabi-Yau is the only permissible SU(3)-structure manifold. Generalising this duality chain to non-Abelian isometries, a strong parallel exists, resulting in the ...

Validation of the Spanish version of the Multidimensional State Boredom Scale (MSBS)

Background Boredom, which is a common problem in the general population, has been associated with several psychiatric disorders. The Multidimensional State Boredom Scale (MSBS) was developed, based on a theoretically and empirically grounded definition of boredom, to assess this construct. The aim of the present study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Spanish ...

Perceived Stress Latent Factors and the Burnout Subtypes: A Structural Model in Dental Students

Background Students of health-professions suffer high levels of stress and burnout. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between perceived stress latent factors (‘tenseness’ and ‘frustration’) and the features (‘overload’, ‘lack of development’ and ‘neglect’) of the three burnout subtypes (‘frenetic’, ‘under-challenged’ and ‘worn-out’, respectively), in a ...

Reassessment of the Psychometric Characteristics and Factor Structure of the ‘Perceived Stress Questionnaire’ (PSQ): Analysis in a Sample of Dental Students

Background The training to become a dentist can create psychological distress. The present study evaluates the structure of the ‘Perceived Stress Questionnaire’ (PSQ), its internal consistency model and interrelatedness with burnout, anxiety, depression and resilience among dental students. Methods The study employed a cross-sectional design. A sample of Spanish dental students (n ...

Causes of discomfort in the academic workplace and their associations with the different burnout types: a mixed-methodology study

Background Burnout is the result of prolonged workplace exposure to chronic stress factors and may present itself in one of the following subtypes: “frenetic”, “under-challenged” and “worn-out”. The aims of the present study were to identify the causes of workplace discomfort that affect employees in large organizations and to determine the predictive power of these causes with ...

A newer and broader definition of burnout: Validation of the "Burnout Clinical Subtype Questionnaire (BCSQ-36)"

Background Burnout syndrome has been clinically characterised by a series of three subtypes: frenetic, underchallenged and worn-out, with reference to coping strategies for stress and frustration at work with different degrees of dedication. The aims of the study are to present an operating definition of these subtypes in order to assess their reliability and convergent validity ...

Understanding burnout according to individual differences: ongoing explanatory power evaluation of two models for measuring burnout types

Background The classic determination of burnout is by means of the dimensions exhaustion, cynicism and inefficacy. A new definition of the syndrome is based on clinical subtypes, consisting of “frenetic” (involved, ambitious, overloaded), “underchallenged” (indifferent, bored, with lack of personal development) and “worn-out” (neglectful, unacknowledged, with little control). The ...

Towards a brief definition of burnout syndrome by subtypes: Development of the "Burnout Clinical Subtypes Questionnaire" (BCSQ-12)

Background Burnout has traditionally been described by means of the dimensions of exhaustion, cynicism and lack of eficacy from the "Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey" (MBI-GS). The "Burnout Clinical Subtype Questionnaire" (BCSQ-12), comprising the dimensions of overload, lack of development and neglect, is proposed as a brief means of identifying the different ways this ...

A factor confirmation and convergent validity of the “areas of worklife scale” (AWS) to Spanish translation

Background Perceived incongruity between the individual and the job on work-life areas such as workload, control, reward, fairness, community and values have implications for the dimensions of burnout syndrome. The “Areas of Work-life Scale” (AWS) is a practical instrument to measure employees´ perceptions of their work environments.AIMS: Validate a Spanish translation of the AWS, ...

Sociodemographic and occupational risk factors associated with the development of different burnout types: the cross-sectional University of Zaragoza study

Background Three different burnout types have been described: The "frenetic" type describes involved and ambitious subjects who sacrifice their health and personal lives for their jobs; the "underchallenged" type describes indifferent and bored workers who fail to find personal development in their jobs and the "worn-out" in type describes neglectful subjects who feel they have ...

Expectations, experiences and attitudes of patients and primary care health professionals regarding online psychotherapeutic interventions for depression: protocol for a qualitative study

Background In the year 2020, depression will cause the second highest amount of disability worldwide. One quarter of the population will suffer from depression symptoms at some point in their lives. Mental health services in Western countries are overburdened. Therefore, cost-effective interventions that do not involve mental health services, such as online psychotherapy programs, ...
