Staff Stressors at a Developmental Center and State Hospital.
Corrigan, Patrick W.
Mental Retardation, v31 n4 p234-38 Aug 1993
Analysis of survey data from clinicians and administrators at a large state hospital/developmental center revealed two underlying constructs of work-related stress: lack of administrative control and practice-related stress. Philosophical opposition to behavior therapy predicted job stress. Working with individuals with mental retardation versus mental illness resulted in no significant stress level differences.
