Abstract

Seventy eight psychiatric aides were administered measures to assess their knowledge of how to apply behavioral methods on the job and their level of occupational stress. The results revealed a significant inverse correlation between behavioral knowledge and occupational stress. Staff members with low levels of behavioral knowledge reported higher levels of occupational stress. The implications of this result for providing inpatient care for people with severe psychiatric impairments is discussed.
