Summary
Distress and professional impairment among applied psychologists are important issues to address primarily due to the adverse effects these conditions can have on the practice of psychotherapy. This study focused on the distress and impairment induced by various negative major life events and stressful work factors. Psychologists whose primary work position involved providing psychotherapy were randomly selected from an APA roster to participate in a mail survey. After two identical mailings, five hundred twenty-two respondents (52.2%) returned the completed questionnaire. Variability existed in the amounts of distress and impairment caused by various life events and work factors, with personal relationship problems (e.g., divorce) and work with difficult clients being particularly troublesome for therapists. Respondents who experienced a greater number of life events ar work factors also reported greater distress and impairment in that domain. Women reported significantly greater distress and impairment surrounding work factors than men. Satisfaction with one's personal life was inversely correlated with life event distress and impairment, and satisfaction with one's professional life was inversely correlated with work factor distress and impairment. Variability existed in the types of preventive behaviors engaged in by psychologists, with participation in non-work related activities and periodic vacations being reported most frequently. Very high positive correlations emerged between distress and impairment far both life events and work factors. Practical implications of these findings are discussed
