Teachers' Occupation-Specific Work-Family Conflict
Cinamon, Rachel Gali; Rich, Yisrael; Westman, Mina
Career Development Quarterly, v55 n3 p249-261 Mar 2007
To expand work-family conflict (WFC) research to specific occupations, this study investigated how work and family generic and occupation-specific stressors and support variables related to family interfering with work (F [right arrow] W) and work interfering with family (W [right arrow] F) among 230 Israeli high school teachers. Further expanding WFC research, the authors assessed WFC effects on burnout and vigor. Results indicated that W [right arrow] F conflict was related to generic variables and more so to distinctive teaching characteristics (e.g., investment in student behavior and parent-teacher relations). Both W [right arrow] F and F [right arrow] W predicted burnout, whereas only F [right arrow] W predicted vigor. Implications for WFC research and occupational health programs are discussed.
