Occupational well-being and stress management among social workers in Norway

This qualitative study will explore perceptions and experiences of well-being and stress among social workers in Norway, including their experienced sources of occupational well-being, stress and potentially burnout, their perceptions about the consequences of occupational stress, how they manage and negotiate occupational stress, and their suggestions for strategies to overcome burnout, reduce stress, and achieve an adequate level of well-being.

 

Objective: The study objective is to explore and gain new knowledge about perceived occupational well-being and stress among social workers in Norway.

 

Research Questions

  1. How do the social workers describe their experiences of occupational well-being, and how do they describe their positive experience engagement at work?
  2. What are the social worker’s experiences of occupational stress? What do they identify as their primary sources of occupational stress, and what do they perceive the consequences of this stress to be? Do they identify as having experienced “burnout” and, if so, how do they describe this?
  3. How do the social workers manage occupational stress? What do they think could be done to reduce stress and improve their occupational well-being and engagement?
