The Relationship among Personal and Work Experiences: Implications for Rehabilitation Counselor Well-Being and Service Provision
O'Sullivan, Deirdre; Bates, Julie K.
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v28 n1 p45-60 2014
The relationships among counselor personal states and work experiences (working alliance self-efficacy, burnout, flourishing, and caseload size) were investigated in a sample of rehabilitation counselors (N = 137). Results from regression analyses revealed 4 burnout factors are significantly and uniquely contributing to counselor flourishing levels. The results from a second model revealed that caseload size and working alliance efficacy are impacting overall burnout levels. The findings indicate that burnout and flourishing are strongly related to each other and may have implications for client outcomes. Counselors with high flourishing levels may shield clients from the negative effects of job related burnout. Caseload size is also contributing to burnout levels. Implications and recommendations for counselor self-care and workplace practices are discussed.
