Hi everyone, I have returned from successfully presenting on the Peer Provider Stress Survey at the Society for Social Work Research, and now I am back to work on the study! This post discusses findings on work-related satisfaction experienced by people who completed the survey.
If you are new to this blog, please read this post about preliminary results before continuing. Thank you!
As part of the Peer Provider Stress Survey, participants answered a lengthy questionnaire called the Measure of Job Satisfaction, or MJS. This questionnaire was originally developed by researchers studying another group of helping professionals--nurses. I chose the MJS for this study because it looks at multiple dimensions of job satisfaction. This is important because when we think about our work, there may be some aspects we're thrilled with, while others may not be so great. I wanted to have a better understanding of that level of detail for peer support providers.
