Role Conflict and Ambiguity as Predictors of Job Satisfaction in High School Counselors
Cervoni, Annemarie; DeLucia-Waack, Janice
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n1 2011
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between role conflict and role ambiguity, and percentage of time spent on ASCA recommended duties (counseling, coordination, consultation, and large group guidance); and job satisfaction of high school counselors. The Role Conflict and Role Ambiguity Scale and the Job Descriptive Index were administered to 175 high school counselors. Role conflict, role ambiguity, time spent on counseling related duties, time spent on consultation related duties, and time spent on non ASCA functions were all found to be significant predictors of job satisfaction.
