Family-Supportive Work Environments and Psychological Strain: A Longitudinal Test of Two Theories
This research shows that not only can perceptions of family-supportive work environments predict later reports of psychological strain in a military sample after returning from combat, but also that experiences of psychological strain can predict later perceptions of family-supportive work environments. These results suggest the importance of understanding the work-family interface from a reciprocal, systems-based perspective.
