Work Stress, Burnout, and Coping. Brief Summary of an Exploratory Study.
Matheny, Kenneth B.; Gfroerer, Coleman A.; Curlette, William C.; Harris, Kristin
The effects of social and family disruption from stress in the work place has caused the American Psychological Association to conclude that "American workers...constitute a work force more at risk than ever for psychological, physical, and behavioral health problems." The study explores what can be learned from successful coping and questions whether it negatively relates to stress. It also considers what can be learned about how people cope, and what available coping resources people have (including their coping thoughts and actions). Findings conclude that coping resources appear to be more predictive of burnout than coping processes; and having resources to draw upon in stressful situations appears to be negatively related to job burnout.
