This paper aims at exploring mechanisms and main causes of workrelated stresses and burnout syndrome (emotional exhaustion) in teachers and describes main strategies of coping with stress-provoking situations. The sample included 140 elementary school teachers from six Omsk schools. The following methods were used in the study: 1) Boyko Emotional Burnout Test 2) Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) 3) Professional stressors and coping strategies table (based upon the criteria developed by V. I. Zhuravlev. Research findings revealed the main groups of stressors (it was found that chronic work-related stress is provoked chiefly by low wages and conflicts with colleagues and parents) and indicated a limited number of burnout syndrome coping strategies in teachers, which, in turn, provokes 'professional destructions'.
