This work tries to find if High School teachers from a Mexican institution feel they have a need to be trained in strategies that will let them handle teacher burnout situations. A concise revision of the terms "need" and "burnout" is included, followed by a Methods section where the authors explain how they used the Formative needs survey for High school Teachers. This instrument was used to investigate if the teachers perceived they had a training need to know and implement strategies and methods to effectively face teacher burnout. The authors report statistically significant findings that point to the recognition by the teachers of a felt need of training in this field.
