Thompson, Isabel A.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Florida
This study examined the influence of counselor perceived working conditions, length of time in field, counselor gender, mindfulness attitudes, compassion satisfaction, emotion-focused coping, problem focused coping, and maladaptive coping on levels of burnout and compassion fatigue in a sample of 213 mental health counselors. Cross-sectional survey research methods were used. Counselor perceived working conditions, length of time in the field, gender, mindfulness, compassion satisfaction, emotion-focused coping, problem-focused coping, and maladaptive coping were predictive of 66.9% of the amount of variance in reported burnout scores among mental health counselors in this sample. However, these same factors were predictive of only 33.1% of the variance in the level of compassion fatigue reported by mental health counselors in this sample. Discussion of the results and implications for counseling training and practice are presented along with recommendations for future research.
