JOB SATISFACTION AND REHABILITATION COUNSELOR PERFORMANCE.
MILLER, LEONARD A.; MUTHARD, JOHN E.
THIS STUDY EXAMINED THE JOB SATISFACTIONS OF REHABILITATION COUNSELORS USING A SAMPLE OF 143 COUNSELORS FROM SIX "DVR" (STATE-FEDERAL GENERAL VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION PROGRAM) AGENCIES. A REVISED FORM OF THE JOB SATISFACTION INVENTORY, ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED BY JOHNSON (1955), ASSESSING SATISFACTIONS WITH EIGHT DIMENSIONS OF THE JOB (RELATIONS WITH ASSOCIATES, RELATIONS WITH EMPLOYER, INTEREST IN JOB, JOB INFORMATION, WORK CONDITION, GOALS, PHYSICAL AND MENTAL EXERTION, AND FINANCES), WAS USED TO COLLECT INFORMATION ON THE NATURE OF COUNSELOR JOB SATISFACTION AND TO UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIPS OF SUCH SATISFACTIONS WITH OTHER CRITERIA OF PERFORMANCE. A CLUSTER ANALYSIS PERFORMED ON THE CORRELATION MATRICES OF MALE AND FEMALE COUNSELORS RESPECTIVELY FOUND THE JOB SATISFACTION OF MALE AND FEMALE COUNSELORS TO BE SIMILAR. HOWEVER, THE ASSOCIATION OF SATISFACTION WITH OTHER CRITERIA OF PERFORMANCE WAS DEPENDENT TO SOME EXTENT ON THE SEX OF THE COUNSELOR. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE CRITERIA PROBLEM IN REHABILITATION COUNSELING" AS CHAPTER VI (PP. 42-47), APPENDIX D (PP. 76-82), AND REFERENCES (PP. 123-129). (PS)
