Research suggests that they are vulnerable to negative stress-related effects, including burnout. We provide evidence to show that life satisfaction, positive affect and negative affect need to be considered to fully understand the complex construct of well-being. This book also reports on an experimental intervention based on the transactional model of stress and coping. The group that implemented the strategies learned in the workshop significantly reduced their negative affect and dysfunctional attitudes. Personality traits did not factor into the relationships among the variables. Counsellors need to pay more attention to assisting participants with enhancing and maintaining post-training effects.
