Abstract [en]

Purpose: To examine variables that contribute to work satisfaction among rehabilitation professionals involved in brain injury rehabilitation.

Method: One hundred and thirty-three respondents completed a job satisfaction questionnaire and qualitative questions regarding sources of stress and satisfaction in working with individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI).

Results: Factor analysis yielded four factors relating to intrinsic satisfaction, perceived importance to the organization, organizational support and training support. Although intrinsic satisfaction was significantly related to the three other factors, it was best predicted by training support, particularly training that addressed the management of intrusive and/or aggressive behaviours. Qualitative correlates of both work stress and satisfaction were also identified with respect to personal issues, client-related issues, and organizationally-related issues.

Conclusions: Satisfaction with work in ABI rehabilitation is derived from multiple sources, but it appears to be largely dependent on feeling important to, and valued by, the organization and on the level of support and training provided in the workplace.
