Join us for a webinar on Tuesday 19th November 2019 at 3pm AEDT
Workload demands and secondary trauma exposure (through clients) can form a characteristic part of the everyday role of workers compensation professionals. Despite this, minimal psychological research exists to aid understanding of how role demands may impact on professional quality of life (impacts to wellbeing derived from the occupational experience) for employees in this sector.
This webinar will discuss new research which has begun to consider risk factors and protective factors for professional quality of life in Australian workers compensation professionals, with some discussion around next steps for future research and practical application.
This presentation will include:
1. What is professional quality of life: the Proqol model and relevance to helping professions
2. Professional quality of life in workers compensation: predicted risk and protective factors
3. General overview of method, sample, measures (Proqol and Occupational Stress Inventory-Revised) and analyses
4. Findings: demographics, occupational role factors and personal resource factors as predictors of professional quality of life
5. Implications: future research directions and initial recommendations for individual and organisational application
