Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v10 n4 p5-26 Sum 1986
Surveyed perceptions of burnout, job stress, and job satisfaction among a representative sample (N=241) of Alabama correctional officers. Examination of predictor variables revealed that social support; marital status; role conflict; age; correctional seniority; and extrinsic, organizational, and overload stressors significantly influenced feelings of burnout and stress. Intervention strategies are suggested for potentially alterable organizational factors. (KS)
