Anticipated Work-Family Conflict: A Construct Investigation
Westring, Alyssa Friede; Ryan, Ann Marie
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v79 n2 p596-610 Oct 2011
To date, little is known about how work-family issues impact the career development process. In the current paper, we explore this issue by investigating a relatively unstudied construct: anticipated work-family conflict. We found that this construct can be represented by the same six-dimensional factor structure used to assess concurrent experiences of work-family conflict. Drawing upon the social-cognitive theory of career development (Lent, Brown, & Hackett, 1994) and the bi-directional model of the work-family interface (Frone, Russel, & Cooper, 1992), we investigated the nomological net of anticipated work-family conflict. Our findings and directions for future research and practice are presented. (Contains 9 tables and 2 figures.)
