Aims: The progress of any organization depends on having healthy and efficient human resources. This study aimed to the relationship between job burnout, Distress Tolerance, and Dimensions of meta-emotion in Forensic Medicine employees.

After fulfilling the research conditions (more than one year of work experience, signing a written consent to participate in research, and have at least a diploma). Forty-five employees (26 women and 19 men) participated in the study. Data was collected by “Demographic Data”, “Burnout Inventory”, “Distress Tolerance”, and “Positive Metacognitions and Positive Meta-Emotions” questionnaires. Data were analyzed in SPSS-21 software by T-test.
Findings: The mean score of emotional exhaustion was (2.67±1.55), depersonalization was (1.52±1.59), and the personality depersonalization respectively (2.92±1.19), which indicated moderate burnout in emotional exhaustion and high burnout in lack of personal accomplishment. The correlation coefficient of metacognition and metaemotional dimensions and job burnout was -0.649 and had a significant and inverse relationship (p=0.009). Also, the correlation coefficient of stress tolerance and burnout was -0.684, which showed a significant and inverse relationship between these two variables (p=0.005).
Conclusion: Considering the effect of burnout on job performance and its relationship with stress tolerance and dimensions of meta-emotion, the importance of reducing environmental stressors by organizing job factors, as well as psychological skills training, should be considered.
