The Relationship between Job Satisfaction and Psychological Health in People with an Intellectual Disability in Competitive Employment.
Petrovski, Pandora; Gleeson, G.
Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability, v22 n3 p199-210 Sep 1997
Ratings of job satisfaction and psychological health (self-esteem, stigma, loneliness, and aspirations) were obtained from 31 workers (ages 18 to 41) with a mild intellectual disability. The workers, all in competitive employment settings in Australia, reported they were "happy" with their jobs. Only partial support was found for a "spillover" effect between job satisfaction and psychological health. (DB)
