Job Satisfaction and Attitudes of Professionals in Two Community Mental Health Centers.
Perlman, Baron; And Others
Job satisfaction levels and attitudes of 47 administrators and outpatient staff working in two comprehensive community mental health centers were compared using multivariate analysis. No significant differences were found between administrators and staff, nor were any inter-agency job satisfaction differences noted. However, the agencies were differentiated with respect to specific perceptions related to political issues, intra-organizational communication, and use of individual initiative. Professional males who work in mental health agencies have job satisfaction levels lower than other comparably educated individuals, despite favorable perceptions of their work. (Author)
