Adult Literacy Education Program Administrators' Perceptions of Occupational Stress and Coping Mechanisms
Engelmann, Stephanie
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Fordham University
Job performance may be adversely affected by stress. Job stress is a primary contributor to serious physical and emotional health consequences. This quantitative study examined adult literacy program administrator perceptions of occupational stress and coping mechanisms related to job satisfaction, job efficacy, career longevity, and overall ability to cope with stress. This research also defined demographic components, job stressors, and coping mechanisms of adult literacy program administrators from New York State. Based on Gmelch's Managerial Stress Cycle, occupational stressors and coping mechanisms were examined using a transactional approach. Adult literacy program administrators identified their perceived levels of job satisfaction, job efficacy, career longevity, and overall ability to cope with stress based on the intervening variables of the study.
