||Occupational burnout, tolerance for stress, and coping among nurses in rehabilitation units
||1996, Vol.41, No.4, p.267-284. 52 ref.
||A questionnaire survey of 98 nurses showed that confidence in one's ability to handle problems and perceived tolerance were predictive of lower burnout scores, regardless of time spent on the job. Of the coping variables studied, emotion-focused coping was associated with higher burnout scores. Further investigation revealed that some coping efforts (taking time off work, confronting a supervisor) could be construed as symptoms of burnout. Implications for current notions of burnout and psychosocial interventions are discussed.
