Work Engagement, Burnout and Personal Accomplishments Among Social Workers: A Comparison Between Those Working in Children and Adults’ Services in England

Abstract

Social workers (SWs) provide emotional and practical support to vulnerable service users who are likely to suffer from emotional trauma and mental health conditions. Stress and burnout levels are reported to be high among SWs, however, little is known about their relationships with different characteristics. The current article utilises unique and large dataset (n = 3786) on SWs working in adults and children's services to examine factors associated with burnout. Employing job-demand/resources model and structural equations modelling, we highlight the varying significant impact of work-engagement, administrative support and work experience as moderating factors to burnout across adult and children service specialism in this sample.

The long-term outcomes of sport-related concussion in pediatric populations

Publication date: Available online 26 April 2018

Author(s): R. Davis Moore, Jacob J. Kay, Dave Ellemberg
Although the field of concussion research is rapidly growing, the majority of research has focused on injured adults, with children being an often-neglected population (Kirkwood et al., 2006). Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability in children (Langlois et al., 2003), with over 1.5 million cases being treated in North America annually (Yeates et al., 1999). Approximately 75% of these injuries are classified as a concussion (Faul et al., 2010). Further, children are disproportionately affected by sports-related injuries, with 65% of all pediatric concussions occurring during sport and recreation (CDC, 2007). Therefore, understanding the outcomes of pediatric sportrelated concussion is of great importance, particularly given the vulnerability of the developing brain (Anderson et al., 2005a, 2005b; Luna, 2009; Prins, 2011). The purpose of this review is to provide an up-to-date understanding of the outcomes of pediatric sport-related concussion from a data-driven perspective, focusing heavily on experimental studies.

Individual differences in combat experiences and error-related brain activity in OEF/OIF/OND veterans

Increased error-related negativity (ERN) has been implicated in the pathophysiology of multiple forms of psychopathology. Although there is increasing evidence that the ERN can be shaped by environment and experience, no studies to date have examined this question in a clinical sample. In the current study, we examined the influence of combat exposure on the ERN using electroencephalogram (EEG) in a sample of military veterans with a high prevalence of psychopathology. Participants included sixty-seven U.S. military veterans from Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND). The degree of combat exposure was assessed using the Deployment Risk and Resilience Inventory-2 (DRRI-2) and Combat Exposure Scale (CES). A well-validated flanker task was used to elicit the ERN during continuous EEG recording. Results revealed that veterans who reported experiencing greater combat exposure exhibited a more enhanced ERN, even when adjusting for broad anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. The association between combat exposure and ERN was not moderated by PTSD symptom severity. The current study demonstrates that greater combat exposure is associated with a more enhanced ERN among OEF/OIF/OND veterans. This enhanced ERN may be one mechanism that places veterans at greater risk for developing psychiatric disorders following exposure to combat. Future longitudinal studies are needed to directly test whether the ERN mediates the relation between level of combat exposure and the development of internalizing disorders.

Differential effects of uncertainty on LPP responses to emotional events during explicit and implicit anticipation

Publication date: Available online 25 April 2018
Source:International Journal of Psychophysiology
Author(s): Huiyan Lin, Jiafeng Liang, Hua Jin, Dongmei Zhao
Previous studies have investigated whether uncertainty influences neural responses to emotional events. The findings of such studies, particularly with respect to event-related potentials (ERPs), have been controversial due to several factors, such as the stimuli that serve as cues and the emotional content of the events. However, it is still unknown whether the effects of uncertainty on ERP responses to emotional events are influenced by anticipation patterns (e.g., explicit or implicit anticipation). To address this issue, participants in the present study were presented with anticipatory cues and then emotional (negative and neutral) pictures. The cues either did or did not signify the emotional content of the upcoming picture. In the inter-stimulus intervals between cues and pictures, participants were asked to estimate the expected probability of the occurrence of a specific emotional category of the subsequent picture based on a scale in the explicit anticipation condition, while in the implicit condition, participants were asked to indicate, using a number on a scale, which color was different from the others. The results revealed that in the explicit condition, uncertainty increased late positive potential (LPP) responses, particularly for negative pictures, whereas LPP responses were larger for certain negative pictures than for uncertain negative pictures in the implicit condition. The findings in the present study suggest that the anticipation pattern influences the effects of uncertainty when evaluation of negative events.
