Self-representations, burnout syndrome, and job satisfaction among correctional officers
The present study examines the relationship between self-representation discrepancies (future self vs. correctional officer), the burnout syndrome, and job satisfaction among a sample of correctional officers. Results showed that burnout decreased job satisfaction. Furthermore, self-representation discrepancies between future self and correctional officer decreased job satisfaction and increased burnout levels. Finally, burnout mediated the relationship between self-representation discrepancies and job satisfaction. Higher discrepancies decreased satisfaction with one’s job through increasing burnout levels.
